This high school season, we will be bringing you a feature each Tuesday where we provide some notable news and notes for the week ahead. Here is the feature for March 26.

Last week saw more teams playing their opening games, while some others are well into their schedule. It was a solid weekend for McDonogh (MD), who recorded impressive wins over Bryn Mawr (MD) on Thursday, March 21 and Episcopal Academy (PA) on Saturday, March 23.

Last week was also a big one for St. Stephen’s/St. Agnes (VA), who defeated Notre Dame Prep (MD) on Friday, March 22 before taking down Radnor (PA) on Sunday, March 24. The Saints have scored at least 13 goals in each of their first three games (3-0).
