An upset in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference allowed two undefeated teams to move up in this week's MDVarsity.com High School Basketball Rankings.

Good Counsel defeated then-No. 2 (now No. 4) DeMatha, opening the door for Lake Clifton (now No. 2) and Springbrook (now No. 3) to move up in the rankings. Lake Clifton also defeated St. Frances of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association a few weeks ago.

The only other undefeated team in the rankings is from the Eastern Shore. Pocomoke High School has moved up to No. 13 after beginning the season outside the top 20.
