Gilman's Antonio Dupree runs against the St. Frances… (Karl Merton Ferron / Baltimore…)
McDonogh's 31-20 loss to LaSalle (Pa.) on Saturday cost the Eagles the No. 1 spot in the Maryland High School Football Media State Poll and dropped them to No. 4 behind No. 3 Gilman in the latest poll released on Tuesday.
Gilman, which defeated St. Frances 42-16 Friday, is now the highest-ranked team from the Baltimore area. The Greyhounds, who moved up from No. 4 last week, are 3-2 with both losses to out-of-state teams. McDonogh is 2-2 with both of its losses also to out-of-state teams.
Undefeated Northwest, the defending Class 4A state champion, is the new No. 1 followed by DeMatha (3-2) at No. 2.
Mount Saint Joseph, the only 5-0 team in the poll, moved up a spot to No. 5 while No. 10 Arundel (4-0), No. 11 Calvert Hall (4-1) and No. 12 Franklin (3-1) held their positions.
River Hill (4-0) moved up two spots to No. 19. Broadneck (4-0) is also up two. No. 22 Archbishop Curley (4-0) debuted in the poll at No. 24.
Several local teams also received votes but did not crack the Top 25: Milford Mill, Archbishop Spalding and Howard.
