In the final Central Jersey Sports Radio high school football rankings before the playoffs begin for public schools around the state, North Brunswick maintained its No. 1 position, after finishing its regular season 8-0.
The Raiders are in the top spot for a fifth straight week, followed by Ridge, which held in second.
The rest of the rankings saw a shuffle thanks to previous No. 3 Hillsborough’s home loss Friday to unranked Westfield, and previous No. 8 Summit’s loss to then No. 10 St. Joseph-Metuchen on Saturday. The Raiders dropped to sixth, while the Hilltoppers fell into a tenth-place tie with Watchung Hills, which is back in after a one-week absence.
The next Central Jersey Sports Radio top ten will be the final one of the season, once the last Big Central team is eliminated from the state playoffs, or after Thanksgiving games are played, whichever comes later.
