We have a new leader in the large school rankings. Lancaster took advantage of a loss by Canisius to move up a notch to the No. 1 spot. But the Crusaders didn't fall far. They are still ahead of Bishop Timon/St. Jude, which moved all the way up to the third spot. Starpoint lost a spot despite continuing an unbeaten season.

In the small school poll, Cheektowaga remains on top. The biggest shuffle was caused by Dunkirk's one-sided win over Maryvale, which send the Flyers tumbling down to the nine spot. There are only three unbeaten teams in this category, and two of them meet on Friday when Olean plays at Cheektowaga.
