Saint Louis is now a Top 10 team in both major national rankings.
Two days after entering the MaxPreps Xcellent 25 at No. 8, the Crusaders moved up three spots to No. 9 in the USA Today Super 25 released today.
Just like the MaxPreps poll, the Crusaders are No. 3 in the West region behind Mater Dei (Calif.) and St. John Bosco (Calif.).
Bishop Gorman, which lost to Saint Louis 31-19 on Friday at Aloha Stadium, dropped to No. 23 in the USA Today poll. The Gaels fell out of the MaxPreps rankings entirely.
Mililani, which will host St. John Bosco on Sept. 21, entered USA Today’s rankings in the West region at No. 10. The region, which includes Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming, has three states with multiple teams in the Top 10 — California, Arizona and Hawaii.
The Crusaders will go for their 30th straight win Friday against Kamehameha at 6 p.m. at Aloha Stadium.
