There weren’t any Texas A&M-sized upsets in the Super 25 over the weekend, but there was some reshuffling after Colquitt County (Ga.) knocked off then-No. 5 Camden County (Kingsland, Ga.).
Manatee (Bradenton, Fla.) maintained its stranglehold on the top spot with a resounding 49-6 win over Lakewood Ranch (Bradenton, Fla.).
John Curtis (River Ridge, La.), DeSoto (Texas) and Bellevue (Wash.) held on to spots 2-4, while Butler (Matthews, N.C.) moved up one spot to No. 5 following its 55-26 win over Independence (Charlotte).
Camden County, which hosts Hillgrove (Powder Springs, Ga.) in the first round of the playoffs on Friday, tumbled all the way to No. 25.
The only team ranked below the Wildcats heading into last week’s games that won and didn’t move up at least one spot was Colerain (Cincinnati), which remains at No. 9 after needing overtime to dispatch Elder (Cincinnati) in the Div. I regional semifinals.
St. Joseph’s Prep (Philadelphia) and St. Edward (Lakewood, Ohio) dropped out of the rankings following losses. Lassiter (Marietta, Ga.) and Bishop McDevitt (Harrisburg, Pa.) are this week’s two newcomers at No. 23 and No. 24, respectively.
