Written by Joe Koch on .

Among the national rankings compiled by, Springfield High of Delaware County is ranked No. 2 among the 706 teams playing high school girls lacrosse in the United States. By this time next week, WPIAL schools will find their names in the national rankings.

Why then, and not now? ranks teams that have played a minimum of five games. Springfield (DelCo) has a 6-0 record.

As of Friday evening, no WPIAL team had played five games -- boys or girls. But that will change this week as most teams will have played five games by the end of this week.

It will be interesting to see just where teams from the WPIAL stack up according to the rankings.
