The defending Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champs improved to 2-1 with their 24-14 win in Cincinnati.

That combined with DeMatha's loss to La Salle (Pa.) boosted McDonogh to the top spot, with 10 first-place votes.

Coach hired: Caroline Cochran, a four-year starter at St. Mary's, was hired as South River's coach.

Cochran's friend and college roommate Sam Farrell stepped down to accept a coaching position in California.

"Last year was a great experience working under Sam," said Cochran, the St.Mary's High School Athlete of the Year in 2008.

"The parents and players and everyone on the athletic support staff has been so gracious to all of us. "
