McDonogh School, recently named as the No. 1 team in the Brine/TopLaxRecruits North American Girls’ Rankings, will open its season with three games in the prestigious Vero Beach Tournament on March 19.
The Eagles, who went 22-0 last year and have completed four straight undefeated seasons, open by playing at the host team, 16th-ranked and eight-time defending Florida state champion Vero Beach (1-0), on March 19 at 7 p.m.
McDonogh then plays No. 17 Georgetown Visitation on March 20 at 5 p.m. and closes its tourney the following day vs. defending PA state champion Harriton (ranked No. 7) at 7 p.m.
If McDonogh (91 straight wins) can make it through the first part of its season unscathed, it can shoot for the national record of consecutive wins by a girls’ team. The record is 103, set by Maryland’s Lock Raven (1982) and Mt. Hebron (2007).
Currently the 12th game of the year would be a road game at 8th-ranked Marriotts Ridge on April 14. The next game, potentially the record-setting contest, would be a home game vs. St. Paul’s School for Girls (ranked No. 14) on April 17. St. Paul’s is the team McDonogh defeated last year for its fifth straight Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland championship.
