rankings. It has been replaced at No. 5 by Butler (Matthews, N.C.), which
moved up one spot from last week after improving to 12-0 heading into its 4A
state quarterfinal matchup against East Forsyth (Kernersville, N.C.).

Two unbeaten teams, Lassiter (Marietta, Ga.) and Bishop McDevitt (Harrisburg,
