LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Unbeaten Lake Creek scored two more lopsided victories to continue its hold on the top spot in the USA TODAY Sports/NFCA High School Super 25 for a fourth-straight week.

The (26-0) Lions beat Montgomery and Porter by a combined 19-1 margin, and the NFCA Texas High School Leadoff Classic titlists have now won 64 of their last 66 games.

Meanwhile, Oaks Christian (20-0), Clovis North (15-0), Neshoba Central (18-2) and Lakewood Ranch (16-2) all kept winning as well, to round out an unchanged first five. Losses by Villa Park (18-4) and Riverton (13-1) allowed undefeated Roncalli (2-0) and Jackson (10-0), and one-loss Marist (6-1-1) to move past them in the top 10.

Perennial powers Eastern Alamance (12-1) and New Palestine (3-0-1) won four and three contests, respectively, to climb a poll-best four places apiece. Unbeaten Lincoln-Way West (6-0) is this week’s newcomer, replacing Lincoln-Way Central (5-3-1), which went a different direction with two losses.

State rankings submitted by the 2022 NFCA High School Steering Committee are used to compile the USA TODAY Sports/NFCA High School Super 25. Teams are chosen based on performance, roster quality, strength of schedule, and active NFCA membership.
