NDP defeated No. 2 Garrison Forest and No. 6 Archbishop Spalding twice each and No. 5 McDonogh in league play. They also defeated 3A state champion and third-ranked C. Milton Wright and 3A state runner up Chesapeake-AA.

Also in the final Top 5 is 4A state champion South River. Liberty, which won the 2A state championship, made the biggest jump in the poll, moving from No. 12 to No. 7. In addition, 1A state champion South Carroll gained a spot in the Top as the Cavaliers are tied for No. 2 with IAAM B champion Mount de Sales.
