Essentially, St. Stevens victory ovee Paul VI, combined with its better record, caused the poll to flip the two teams' position on the ranking.
A solid victory over perennial challenger Gilman leaves Prep with some solid ground on which to base the upcoming IAC campaign.
St. Alban's, ranked 141 in the National Computer Poll, is no easy target. With wins over other local teams, they also struggle with Gonzaga, but haven't faced as many challenges from tough competition to come up to their 5-2 record.

While this contest lacks the elan and crowd draw of the Prep-Landon, or even Prep-Bullis, rivalry, we can't be complacent. In recent history, St. Albans has pulled a rabbit out of their hat to ruin an otherwise unblemished season for Prep.
See you at the game!
