Ridley edges Episcopal Academy and will solidify its No. 1 spot with a win at Garnet Valley.
Ridley/EA is pretty much a toss-up. I like Ridley a tad more only because they are clearly top dog in the Central League, which is the toughest league in the county, whether people want to admit it or not.
Springfield makes the biggest leap, going from unranked to No. 3 ahead of No. 4 Garnet. The No. 3 spot was the toughest of all. In the end I felt that Springfield’s accomplishment, taking down the top team, warranted a serious push this week.
Now, if Garnet beats Ridley Friday, it gets even messier next week.
Haverford High, Cardinal O’Hara and Interboro… you can probably juggle those three and place them anywhere you want in Nos. 5-7.
In conversation: Academy Park, Haverford School, Sun Valley.
