Christ the King (Middle Village, N.Y.) continued its upward climb with three wins last week, including one over another Super 25 team.
The Royals (21-0) rose from No. 3 to No. 2 as Nina Rickards had 20 points in an 86-51 defeat of Monsignor Scanlan (Bronx), Kaelynn Satterfield had 13 points and 17 rebounds in a 60-53 defeat of No. 19 St. John Vianney (Holmdel, N.J.) and the Royals also topped Xavierian (Brooklyn) 80-28.
Duncanville, Texas (35-1) slipped from No. 2 to No. 3 as the Panthers needed overtime to take down DeSoto 65-63 as Krisyln Marsh had 20 points.
Only one team lost to an unranked team team to drop out: former No. 25 Newark, Ohio. That left room for one new team, No. 24 Mesquite (Gilbert, Ariz.). The Wildcats (24-3) rolled past Williams Field (Gilbert, Ariz.) 88-42 as Lindsey VanAllen had 40 points.
