Two new teams join and there is a shakeup in the top ten.

New additions to the Super 25

Prospect: So, the Knights have probably been overlooked for too long now. They enter a little higher than most new teams to try and make up for that. They are unbeaten and smashed Rolling Meadows this weekend.

Wheaton Warrenville South: Last week I speculated that the Tigers were likely to reappear in the rankings eventually. I didn’t think it would be this quick. The big win over Batavia gets them right back.

Dropping out

Oswego (3-1): As if losing for the first time to your crosstown rival (Oswego East) wasn’t bad enough, it also knocks the Panthers out.

DeKalb (2-1): The loss to Naperville Central at home was just too heavy to keep DeKalb in the rankings.
