A pair of SIMA FAB 50 girls soccer fixtures are back at the top of regional rankings this week.

Medina (Ohio) and Portland Jesuit (Portland, Ore.) inherit their respective regional No. 1 spots. Both programs are recent state champions, and Portland Jesuit has a SIMA FAB 50 national title to its credit while Medina has finished as high as No. 2.

On the boys side, there were no changes at No. 1 in the seven regions.

* McDonogh School (Owings Mills, Md.) visits Archbishop Curley (Baltimore, Md.) in a Maryland No. 1 vs. No. 2 meeting, and both teams are ranked in the SIMA FAB 50 Top 15.
