Sports highschool women soccer ballot: 7 groups stay undefeated –

Syracuse, N.Y. — We enlisted journalists who cover teams from all over the area to pick their top girls soccer teams in Section III.

We’re picking the top five teams in each class (AA, A, B, C, D).

Five points are awarded for first place, four for second, etc. We publish the poll each Monday until the end of the Section III playoffs.

A handful of large schools have already played their first game, which made it easier to rank them for the first week. The rest of Section III will have their season openers Tuesday, so this week’s rankings are a mere projection based on the success of last season.
