Gloucester Catholic maintains its hold at the top for a second consecutive week but newcomer Shawnee has made the most noise over the opening weeks of the season.


1. Gloucester Catholic (4-0) 1: Four games against Tri-County rivals haven’t been very competitive. A pair of games against out of state powers will be much tougher for the Rams

2. Shawnee (6-0) NR: An impressive perfect start to the season has been built on timely offense as they picked up wins against sister schools Lenape and Cherokee on consecutive days.

3. Bishop Eustace (5-0) 8: A perfect start to the year which includes a Ralph Shaw title last weekend has put the Crusaders back in the picture after a down 2016 season.

4. Washington Twp. (4-1) 4:  A 17-7 loss to Seneca put a dent in the Minutemen but not much of one as they rebounded with a strong 3-2 win over Olympic American rival Lenape behind freshman starter Nick Hammer.

5. Eastern (3-1) 5: In a week with only one game, the Vikings did their part in a 4-1 win over Cherokee. Expect their best on April 25 when they square off against undefeated Shawnee.

6. Millville (4-1) 3: After a huge 3-1 win over the second-ranked St. Augustine the Bolts fell 8-6 to Egg Harbor Township. Still that’s not enough to see a huge change in their South Jersey status.

7. St. Augustine (5-1) 2:  The Hermits have dominated the early season schedule with the exception of a 3-1 loss to Millville. Their schedule gets tougher over the next two weeks and we will know more about St. Augustine after that stretch of games.

8. Cherry Hill West (1-0): A week away will give the Lions a chance to be the healthiest team in South Jersey next week.

9. Clearview (5-0) 9: The defending South Jersey Group 4 champions have rolled through their opening five games without a missed step.

10. Hammonton (5-0) NR: A win over a Williamstown team that on paper looked very strong before the year showed the Blue Devils are capable of big wins. The bigger question is can they keep pace over the next two months.
