With the ascension of New Jersey’s Bergen Catholic, Don Bosco Prep and St. Joseph Regional (Montvale) from The Other 25 (teams #26 through #50) to the Top 25 on Sunday, there’s plenty of movement in this week’s second level of our rankings.

While Webb City (Missouri) and Wayne (Ohio) both inched closer to the national Top 25 by moving-up one spot to #26 and #27 respectively, there were several teams making significant jumps as we move deeper into the postseason.

The biggest mover of the week was Elder (Ohio), which climbed ten spots to #32 this week.  The Panthers can bust into the Top 25 if it can beat #11 Colerain in the third round of the Ohio Division 1 playoffs this week.

The second biggest mover was Westlake (Texas), which had spent plenty of time in The Other 25 earlier this year.  Westlake re-enters our Top 50 at #42.

In all, three Texas teams join the Top 50 party this week.  Southlake Carroll breaks-in at #45 and Marcus, whose only loss this year is to top-ranked Allen, is at #49.  The other Texas team in The Other 25 is Euless Trinity, which tumbled from #5 to #29 after its three point upset loss to South Grand Prairie Friday night.

The fourth new team in this week’s poll is Starkville from Mississippi, which checks-in at #47.

Aside from Elder and Westlake, the week’s biggest movers are Archbishop Rummel (Louisiana), Loyola Academy (Illinois), Trinity (Kentucky) and West Monroe (Louisiana).  All four teams teams move-up six spots respectively.

Trinity has a huge game on Friday against #12 Male in the third round of the Kentucky 6A playoffs.  Male won the first game between the two earlier this season.
