After loss, River Hill drops eight spots in state football rankings

River Hill tumbled eight spots in this week's Maryland High School Football Media State Poll after falling to Hammond on Friday, 47-38. The loss ended a 30-game winning streak and the Hawks’ Top 10 run in the state poll.

DeMatha held onto the top spot with every first-place vote after defeating Gonzaga, 31-21. Gilman remains No. 2 after its 29-21 win over Archbishop Spalding.

Seven undefeated teams are in the Top 10, including No. 5 McDonogh and No. 6 Old Mill, with 11 unbeaten teams in the Top 25.

No one dropped out of the poll this week. No. 14 Meade and No.15 Arundel each moved up a spot, while No. 17 Dunbar and No. 19 St. Paul’s retained their positions. No. 24 Glenelg dropped a spot and Archbishop Curley fell from No. 21 to No. 25.

South Carroll, North Carroll and Spalding received votes, but not enough to crack the Top 25.
