2022 Md. Media State Poll (Week 4)
Archbishop Spalding’s one-sided win over Calvert Hall, which was a No. 5 vs. 6 contest last week, allowed Spalding to leapfrog Quince Orchard and settle into the No. 4 position in this week’s Top 25.
Quince Orchard slips a spot to No. 5 but remains the highest-ranked public school program, just ahead of No. 6 Wise.
There was only one newcomer to the Top 25 this week — St. Vincent Pallotti, which is returning to the Top 25 after knocking off Gilman. The victory marked Pallotti’s first win over an MIAA A Conference opponent since the shortened 2020 season.
