A big move this week is Belmont Hill (8-4-3) up six spots to #7 after the tie with Tabor and a 4-1 takedown of now #8 St. Mark’s (11-3-0). The Hillies are off until a Saturday matchup with St. Paul’s

St. Mark’s did defeat St. George’s and gets Middlesex (Wednesday) and Academie St. Louis (Friday).
