Mission Viejo (California) and Loyola Academy (Illinois) enter new “The Other 25”

The Other 25

While there’s been a lot of shuffling in the Top 25 since the start of the season, The Other 25 has had some stability.  For the first time in two weeks, we have a couple of new teams breaking into our Top 50.

Entering the National Top 50 at #49 is Mission Viejo (California).  The Diablos are the CIF Division I-AA state champs and are currently riding a 31-game win streak, which is tied for the eighth longest active streak in the nation.

Checking-in at #50 is Loyola Academy, the defending Illinois 8A champs.  The Ramblers finished #21 in the nation in 2015.

The La Salle Lancers from Ohio remain on the bubble.  La Salle, the two-time Division II champs, lost to nationally-ranked Colerain 6-0 Friday night.

The biggest movers this week are Armwood (Florida) and Archbishop Hoban (Ohio).  Armwood moves-up eight spots to #41, which is one spot behind Hoban, the defending Ohio Division III champs, checking-in at #40.  Hoban moved-up six spots.

As far as the week ahead, #35 South Pointe (South Carolina) will square-off with Mallard Creek (North Carolina) this week.  The Mavericks were ranked #11 in last week’s National Top 25.
