Hillhouse unanimous No. 1 in latest poll

|

Another week, another poll.

Hillhouse is still No. 1 and took home all 19 votes in the New Haven Register state poll this week.

Fairfield Prep, despite losing to Hillhouse, dropped only one spot to No. 3.  St. Joseph moved up to No. 4 based on the strength of its win over Trinity Catholic, which fell to No. 7.

Ridgefield moved back into the Top 10 following its impressive win over Bassick on Friday.

Wilby, the last remaining undefeated team in the rough-and-tumble NLV is the new No. 2, also 11-0 like Hillhouse.
