2022 Md. Media State Poll (Week 5)

Welcome back Fort Hill and Broadneck.

Between these programs, there’s more than 350 weeks spent in the Top 25 since the inception of the poll in 1990 and both were on the outside looking in during 2022 — until now.

Broadneck, which opened the season with a one-sided loss to No. 4 Archbishop Spalding, is back in the rankings at No. 25. Fort Hill, meanwhile, earned its way into No. 16 by putting a 49-21 hitting on previous No. 12 Oakdale. Mervo and St. Mary’s Ryken were the two teams pushed out of the rankings, creating spots for Broadneck and Fort Hill.

There’s no change at the top as St. Frances remains No. 1 followed by Good Counsel, DeMatha, Archbishop Spalding and Quince Orchard.

Now on with the rest of the Top 25 …
