StringKing / Recruiting Rundown Top 25 High School Power Rankings: Week 10

mkwcymjn05bnxqt2.jpgThere wasn’t a whole lot of turmoil that occurred over the past week, but some mixing and matching took place as quality wins were accumulated. Boys’ Latin (Md.) jumped into the No. 5 spot and will play in the MIAA semifinals on Monday night, while Gonzaga (a team that the Lakers beat) stays in the No. 6 position and Victor (N.Y.) falls to No. 7. The rankings will continue to change as playoff match-ups take place.


An 8-3 win by St. Anthony’s (N.Y.) over New Canaan (Conn.) moves the Friars into the No. 10 position while the Rams fall to No. 15. With one game to go and no postseason in their conference, Brunswick (Conn.) suffered a loss to Salisbury before picking up a quality win over Trinity-Pawling (N.Y.), dropping four spots to No. 16. Culver (Ind.) and Delbarton (N.J.) move up a spot each heading into more postseason play. Syosset (N.Y.), Loyola Blakefield (Md.) and St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes (Va.) all join this week.
