The She Got Game Classic in D.C. this past weekend allowed top out-of-state teams to challenge some of this area’s best squads.
Some units proved themselves as the area’s best. Riverdale Baptist and Edison took down top teams from North Carolina and Delaware, respectively. McNamara, Woodbridge and T.C. Williams were among the other teams that thrived at the marquee showcase.
Some strong contenders showed they have work to do, though, such as Eleanor Roosevelt, Loudoun Valley and Gwynn Park.
Elsewhere, Poolesville lost its first game since the 2016-17 season, and Georgetown Visitation fell to Madison. Howard, Dunbar, Northwest and Oakland Mills continued their impressive starts to their seasons and joined the Top 20.
