NJ Varsity Top 25: Groups 1 and 2

Two teams exited the Top 25: Rumson-Fair Haven and Butler. I had 27 teams in the Top 25 last week, with Hoboken, Shabazz, and Weequahic in a three way tie at 25. This week, they're still in a three way tie, but now they're at 23. All three teams won, including Weequahic beating then #13 Rumson-Fair Haven. Weequahic will play Shabazz Thursday morning.
