McDonogh girls soccer picked as No. 1 team in nation to start the year

Four local schools were listed Tuesday in Student Sports' preseason Fab 50 national polls for boys and girls soccer, including the McDonogh girls at No. 1 in the country.

The McDonogh girls team returns nine starters, led by All-Metro first-team selections Bridgette Andrzejewski and Anna Bialczak, and the Eagles will play one of the country's most challenging schedules after finishing as the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference runner-up in 2012.

River Hill, which won the Class 3A state championship after going 19-0 last season, will begin the year at No. 22 in the Fab 50 rankings.

With George Campbell and Connor Smith leading a deep squad, McDonogh enters the season at No. 5 in the Student Sports boys soccer rankings.

Gilman, which finished as the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference runner-up last year, is listed at No. 33 in the poll to start the year.
