After ranking our top 50 teams before the season we will post updated top 25 rankings at the beginning of every week!

At this point in the season nearly every team has made an appearance at a major invitational. The top of the rankings remain mostly stagnant, with only the Northwood boys moving up following a dominant win at the Rebel Invitational (without one of their top five runners). 

There was more movement further down in the rankings. The Blair boys move up after winning the Hood College Invitational and the Loyola-Blakefield boys had the biggest jump (ten spots) after placing third at the Barnhart Invitational. A few teams didn't move quite as much as results may have indicated because of missing runners (Walter Johnson, South River), and the Calvert Hall boys ran a B team at the Barnhart Invitational.
