Tennessee stays perfect, Eagle FC and Long Island Rough Riders crack the top 10

Every club has officially kicked off their 2024 W League campaigns, bringing the competition to an all-time high. Last week was full of intense matches that caused some teams to fall and others to jump up in the standings.  

Eagle FC and Midwest United make their Power Rankings season debut, and Long Island Rough Riders and FC Olympia have moved their way up into the top 10. 

Here’s how the rest of the standings look:
