SoCal’s St. John Bosco and Corona Centennial climb in latest Top 25 Media Poll

Top 25

For the first time since we began releasing our Top 25 Media Compilation Poll earlier this month, Bishop Gorman‘s (Nevada) lead has shrunk. 

The Gaels remain the #1 team, but St. John Bosco‘s (California) impressive win in New Jersey last week over St. Peter’s Prep moved the Braves higher in three of the five polls, giving them 116 total points, which reduced Gorman’s led by a point from last week. and have had Bosco #1 in their respective polls, since the preseason.

Moving up two spots this week is Corona Centennial (California), which was idle last weekend.  The Huskies were helped-out by former #2 St. Thomas Aquinas‘ (Florida) fourth quarter come-from-behind 36-28 win over Hallandale (Florida).  Aquinas drops from #2 to #4.

For the second week in a row, Allen (Texas) and DeMatha (Maryland) flip-flopped.  DeMatha moves into the five hole, while Allen drops to #6.

New to this week’s poll are Jenks (Oklahoma) and St. Edward (Ohio).  Archbishop Rummel (Louisiana) and Bergen Catholic (New Jersey) drop-out this week.

In addition to our poll, which is based on our proprietary algorithm, we include USA Today’s Super 25, MaxPreps’ Xcellent 25,’s HSFB 100 and’s National Prep Poll.

The poll awards points on the basis of ranking.  For example, the #1 team receives 25 points, the #2 team receives 24 points and so forth.

Our media compilation poll is released every Wednesday.
