The top 3 teams in the rankings have combined for a total of 9 losses. Although, none of the losses at the hands another Palm Beach County team. Here's a look at this weeks Top 5:
#1 Forest Hill - Forest Hill picked up one of it's better wins of the year going down to Broward and beating a talented Chaminade-Madonna team. The Falcons followed up the with wins over Boynton Beach and Palm Beach Gardens to finish the week 3-0.
#2 Saint Andrew's - The Scot's tough schedule continued this week going 2-1 falling to a talented Gulliver Prep yet still stay in the #2 based on its body of work so far.
#3 Grandview Prep - Grandview picked up two big wins over North Broward Prep on the road and Atlantic Christian at home.
#4 Dwyer - The Panthers ran into a hot and improving Royal Palm squad in overtime Tuesday night but bounced back with a win over then #4 Jupiter Friday night.
#5 Wellington - Wolverines went on the road and beat Lakes Tuesday night in a highly anticipated matchup and followed that up with another win against cross-town Palm Beach Central to get back into the Top 5.
Park Vista seems to be getting hot at the right time playing its best basketball against better competition and could be looking to get back in the poll.
