2018 Md. Media State Poll (Week 5)
One point. One big win.
And just like that, St. Mary’s Ryken, an early Top 25 candidate, jumped back into the rankings after taking down Bullis, a week after Bullis defeated Quince Orchard.
Ryken, following the 34-33 victory over Bullis, checks in at No. 12 this week.
The team has rolled off five straight wins since getting manhandled by No. 6 Mount St. Joseph 49-7 in the season opener.
St. Frances returns to its perch as undisputed No. 1 in Maryland, followed by DeMatha and Good Counsel in a private school-heavy Top 10.
Now, on with the media Top 25 this week …
