Glendale Climbs Seven Spots in Girls Coaches Poll

The Glendale girls won three of four games last week, improving their overall record to 6-3 and earning enough attention to climb seven spots to No. 11 in the Week 3 MaxLaxLA/US Lacrosse coaches poll.

The Nitros won 7-6 at Agoura and beat The Harvey School of New York 13-9 before losing to No. 1 Redondo Union 16-6 and wrapping up the week with a 16-6 win over Peninsula.

Redondo (5-1), Oak Park (4-1) and Chaminade (5-1) held steady in the first three spots in the poll, with Redondo again a unanimous No. 1 pick on the 12 ballots cast.

Agoura, which lost star Lauren Harrison to a knee injury, lost to both Glendale and Redondo and fell from No. 4 to No. 7.

Also rising in the poll this week was Palisades (3-0), which went from No. 15 to No. 12, and La Reina and Newbury Park, which both entered the Top 20 after being unranked a week ago. La Reina (2-3) won at Thousand Oaks but lost at Newbury Park. Newbury (3-1) beat both West Ranch and La Reina.

Dropping out of the Top 20 to make room were Simi Valley (2-4) and Dos Pueblos (2-3).
