Week 9

Mater Dei (Calif.) added another week to the consecutive streak atop the USA TODAY Sports Super 25, with the Monarchs improving to 9-0 on the season after a 52-7 win over Santa Margarita (Calif.).

On the other side of the country, Central (Fla.) provided plenty of dramatics, holding off a second-half surge by Columbus (Fla.) to remain at No. 3. And Chaminade-Madonna’s dismantling of Avant Garde Academy (Fla.) earned the Lions the No. 9 spot this week.

Outside looking in, Guyer’s decisive in-state win over Texas power Allen moved them up a spot. The 49-7 victory was only the second loss of the year for the Eagles, the first coming at the hands of No. 5 St. John Bosco (Calif.), 52-14.

As the playoff crunch nears, here’s how the full Super 25 breaks down.
