Calvert Hall was at the top of the VSN Boys Soccer Top 20 when the season got underway and the Cardinals will hold that top spot at season’s end. Along the way, there were stints at No. 2 and No. 3, as the Cards took some bumps in what is arguably the top high school soccer league in the nation, before rallying in the post-season to win the MIAA A Conference championship.

Teams 2 thru 4 in the final poll are also from the A Conference and all four spent time in the national polls this fall. Rounding out the top five in the final poll is Howard County’s Mount Hebron, which fell in the 3A state title game to Frederick County’s Urbana, another Maryland squad in the national rankings.

Here is the final VSN Boys Soccer Top of the 2016 season:
