New London

New London makes its first appearance in the SSN Top at #9 as they continue to move thru the Connecticut tournament trail. The Whalers replace Hoover who were upset last week by Sparkman (27-5) 55-54 in the AHSAA tournament.

Dropping five spots this week is former #1 Edwardsville who had two close call wins during IHSA tournament play. The Tigers have struggled during tournament play and had to  come from behind late to beat Belleville East (18-10)  41-40 and Rock Island (23-10) 48-44 in the Sectional final. Is doesn’t getting any easier as Tigers move on to the Super-Sectionals a win will get them to State Final Four.
