New Trier (Ill.) No. 1 in Midwest Region Girls' Top 10


Coming off a 24-win state championship campaign, the Trevians are “led by a strong senior class,” per coach Pete Collins.

New Trier (Ill.) tops the first Midwest Region Girls’ Top 10 of the 2023 spring season.

With each region beginning play in different weeks — the South and West start before the Mid-Atlantic, Midwest and Northeast get underway — our high school contributors will provide in-season updates in each active region prior to the first National Top 25 update.

USA Lacrosse Magazine will also release 25 players to watch for both boys’ and girls’ lacrosse on March 23.

The first National Top 25 update comes March 28. From there, rankings will be updated each Tuesday throughout the spring.

USA Lacrosse Magazine contributors consult with high school coaches across the country to develop the Nike/USA Lacrosse National Top 25 and Regional Top 10 rankings for boys’ and girls’ lacrosse. These rankings do not include schools that admit post-graduate students.

1. New Trier (Ill.)

Coming off a 24-win state championship campaign, the Trevians are “led by a strong senior class,” per coach Pete Collins. New Trier should be dangerous on the attack, led by attacker Addie Shevitz (Arizona State) and midfielders Audrey Rudolph (Ohio State) and Kennedy Meier (Michigan), while Anna Seftenberg and Grace Mawicke (Lehigh) anchor the defense.

2. New Albany (Ohio)

The Eagles are coming off an electrifying 2022, capped by spoiling Upper Arlington’s (Ohio) bid for a perfect season in the state championship game. New Albany should be no less dangerous in 2023 as it returns Ohio State commit Maddy Paz, Notre Dame commit Ellie McClelland and Louisville commit Abby Cole, all of whom scored multiple goals in that state title game.

3. Loyola Academy (Ill.)

The Ramblers suffered two heartbreaking one-goal losses to the Trevians last season, the latter ending their shot at a state title, and graduated longtime stars Maeve Dwyer (63 G, 40 A, 94 DC) and Adrienne Leone (80 G, 26 A), but don’t expect this team to go anywhere. Yes, Loyola might be young, but the talent is there, including Emma Burke, Eileen Dooley and Riley Jenkins, all of whom tallied 24-plus goals last season.

4. Upper Arlington (Ohio)

The Golden Bears were excellent in Morgan Fee Maldovan’s first season at the helm, winning their first 22 games before an overtime loss in the state championship. While last year’s leading scorers Rian Adkins (98 G, 32 A) and Camryn Callaghan (52 G, 40 A) are impossible to replace, Upper Arlington returns its next nine leading scorers, led by Kampbell Stone (50 G, 23 A, 96 DC, 49 GB) and Lilly Stelzer (42 G, 27 A).

5. Kentucky Country Day (Ky.)

The Bearcats are off to a flying start to the 2023 campaign, including a one-goal win over Volunteer State power Harpeth Hall. In addition to returning one of the Midwest’s top players in Sarah Beth Burns, KCD also has a loaded freshman class, with Ellie Beam and Christine Martin combining for 11 goals in the team’s first two games of the season.

6. East Grand Rapids (Mich.)

The Pioneers have won three straight state titles, including last year’s epic 12-11 win over Detroit Country Day in the championship game. After graduating eight seniors, including stars like Lucy Cavanaugh, Lizzie Lundeen, Caroline Potteiger and Eliana LaMange, repeating will not be easy for EGR, especially with Detroit Country Day (Mich.) bringing back a ton of talent.

7. University School of Milwaukee (Wisc.)

The Wildcats are coming off a remarkable one-loss season, in which that lone loss came to one of the region’s best in New Trier. While graduates Grace Tuttle, Molly Janssen and Brooke Robinson combined for 224 goals and will be very hard to replace, Abby Sisson (49 G, 45 A, 31 GB) and Mia Darr (32 G, 12 A, 37 GB) are more than capable of leading USM to another big season.

8. Hinsdale Central (Ill.)

Coming off a 20-win season, the Red Devils have to replace a pair of 53-goal scorers in Annette Ciupek and Tessa Howe and their leader in assists (Riley Matthews with 70), but have plenty of options going forward. Hinsdale Central returns last year’s leading scorer, Emily Brankin (60 G, 13 A, 30 GB), along with Reese Napier (48 G, 9 A, 18 GB), Parker Matthews (29 G, 8 A, 20 GB), Daphne Venetsanopolous (26 G, 8 A, 20 GB), and Ariana Tavoso (22 G, 4 A, 36 GB). Also watch for Logan O’Connor, who won nearly two-thirds of her draws as a freshman.

9. Carmel (Ind.)

After falling in the state title game last season, the Greyhounds have no shortage of motivation or talent. Carmel’s copious talent includes one of the state’s top players in UConn commit Tori Tomalia (53 G, 28 A, 85 DC), versatile midfielder Anna Dumke (36 G, 16 A, 36 GB) and speedy sophomore Sophie Mock (40 G, 7 A, 34 DC).

10. Mariemont (Ohio)

Coming off a 20-win season, including a 14-13 win over Chagrin Falls in the state title game, the Warriors have the talent to make a run at a repeat. That includes Piper George, who had five goals in that championship victory over the Tigers, as well as Caroline Soller, who scored four, and Sarah Comer, who had a goal and three assists.
