Top Three Storylines

Top-ranked Chino Hills (Calif.) added another bullet point to its national championship resume by finishing the regular season with a perfect 27-0 record. The Wolves open play Friday in the CIF-SS Open Division playoffs, a 16-team bracket with six teams that have been nationally or regionally ranked this season.

No. 2 Montverde Academy (Fla.) closes out a five-day weekend in New Jersey with a matchup against regionally ranked Linden (N.J.) tonight. The Eagles are 3-0 on the trip so far, including a 59-55 win over regionally ranked Roselle Catholic.

The regular season championship of the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference will come down to the final week of the season. No. 8 St. John’s College (Washington) appeared to be in the driver’s seat after beating No. 7 DeMatha, 61-54, last Tuesday. However, the Cadets fell back into a first-place tie with the Stags after losing to O’Connell (Va.) three days later.

Top Three Risers
1. Overland (Colo.)
2. Roselle Catholic (N.J.)
3. H.D. Woodson (D.C.)

About the PrepNation National Prep Poll
The PrepNation National Prep Poll is a continuation of World Feature Syndicate’s National Prep Poll, which was published and distributed to the Associated Press and other news organizations from 1987 to 2015.

The National Prep Poll is second only to the USA Today Super 25 as the longest continually published weekly high school rankings. While a product of World Features Syndicate (1987-2015), the National Prep Poll was the only high school poll distributed to newspapers and websites around the United States by the Associated Press.

Before authoring rankings for Student Sports and ESPN, National High School Sports Hall of Fame journalist Doug Huff compiled the National Prep Poll rankings from 1987 until 1999. Current author Jamie DeMoney has compiled the poll since the start of the 1999 basketball season to the present.

Among the criteria used in the weekly compilation of the National Prep Poll rankings are strength of schedule, the ability to accomplish the ultimate goal on a team's schedule (i.e. winning a championship), impact players and performers, a team's coaching and recent tradition.

About was originally launched August 1, 2001 by Jamie DeMoney for the purpose of creating a permanent online home for the National Prep Poll football and boys basketball rankings.
