Unbeaten McDonogh (Md.) finished off a three-game sweep in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland tournament, including a 12-11 win over current No. 8 Maryvale Prep (Md.) in the championship game, to conclude its 2012 season at the top of the latest Lacrosse Magazine National High School Girls Top 25 Poll, released today at as part of the magazine’s biweekly report on high school girls’ lacrosse.

The Eagles (18-0), ranked No. 1 since the season’s outset, were rarely tested in their third consecutive undefeated season. When they were, senior Taylor Cummings was there to score the game-winner against Maryvale Prep with nine seconds to play, and she also controlled the ensuing draw. The win also gave McDonogh its 69th straight win and fourth straight IAAM championship.

The poll is compiled by Lacrosse Magazine’s high school writers and staff.
