The three-time defending ILH Division I champion Saint Louis Crusaders had the week off, but managed to jump two spots to No. 23 in the latest MaxPreps Xcellent Top 25 released Sunday night.
Winners of 13 consecutive games overall, the Crusaders (8-0) are eighth in the West Region. Bingham (Utah), which shut out Kahuku 17-0 in a game in September that Red Raiders sophomore QB Sol-Jay Maiava did not play in, is ranked No. 10.
Other notable teams are Mater Dei (No. 1), Bishop Gorman (No. 16) and Mission Viejo (No. 18).
Mission Viejo beat Baldwin in August, 39-14.
Saint Louis returns to the field in the semifinals of the Division I-Open state tournament on Nov. 10 against the loser of Saturday’s OIA D-I championship game between Kahuku and Mililani.
