2016 Md. Media State Poll (Week 1)

A record-setting Week 1 is in the books and there’s only one new team joining the Top 25 this week.

Sherwood is the lone newcomer to this week’s Top 25. In an interesting twist, Bob Milloy, who formerly coached Sherwood, collected career win No. 400 with Good Counsel’s victory over Saturday, making him the first in Maryland to achieve that milestone.

DeMatha extends its lead at No. 1, ahead of Good Counsel and McDonogh. Damascus and Wise, both defending state champs with impressive season-opening wins, move up into the Nos. 4 and 5 spots this week.

The weekly State Poll is released each Tuesday until the completion of the MPSSAA regular season. The final poll will be released the Tuesday following the MPSSAA state title games.
