2017 Md. Media State Poll (Week 8)
Week 10 is the historical “rivalry week.”
It appears that has shifted to Week 9 this season.
Four of the top six teams in this week’s Top 25 face state-ranked opponents. In addition, No. 3 Damascus takes on Seneca Valley; No. 10 Quince Orchard takes on No. 18 Northwest and No. 20 North Caroline and Kent Island clash for Bayside supremacy.
In this week’s rankings, the only newcomer is Landon, which earned a spot in the Top 25 after defeating former Top 25-ranked Georgetown Prep. There were few adjustments to the order this week as Walkersville and McDonogh swapped spots at 4 and 5, and Fort Hill fell from No. 6 to No. 15 after a loss to Friendship Collegiate (D.C.). Archbishop Spalding, which defeated Friendship Collegiate, checks in at No. 14, just ahead of Fort Hill.
