No. 5 Bayside (12-1-2)

D.J. Glazer put a scare in Bronx Science, putting the Commodores in front a PSAL Class A quarterfinal match against Bronx Science, but the Wolverines pulled out a 6-1 victory. With Glazer coming back for her senior year, Bayside should again be among the PSAL elite next year.
