Bishop Feehan claims the top spot in the Globe’s preseason high school girls’ soccer poll, boasting a lineup flush with returning talent that fell in the Division 1 semifinals last season.

Alongside senior captains Kileigh Gorman, Maddie Eddy, and Ava Graham, all of which who are committed to play Division 1 college soccer, junior midfielder Brooke Kennedy has emerged as a premier player in the state. “The expectations for the group is high,” said coach Phil Silva.

Reigning D1 champion Hingham, now aligned in Division 2, leads a strong field in the Patriot League. Franklin, King Philip, Oliver Ames, and Mansfield make up a quality core in the always-competitive Hockomock League. Cohasset, fresh off of a Division 4 championship, looks to be a formidable squad again.
