Another perfect week, another week sitting atop the Globe Top 20. No. 1-ranked Acton-Boxboro had another clean week, beating three opponents by a combined score of 17-1.
And if you like stability, check out the top 5. Since week 1, there's been no change with A-B followed by Walpole, Dennis-Yarmouth, Apponequet, and Watertown. None of the first five have suffered a loss this fall.
And there was more good news in Watertown. In addition to owning a 99-0-3 unbeaten streak, Raiders coach Eileen Donahue reports she was named a 2013 national coach of the year by the National High School Federation.
West Bridgewater makes its Top 20 debut. The Wildcats are No. 19 at 9-0-2.
Several reporters and editors contribute updates, news and analysis to the High School Sports Blog.
- Bob Holmes: A Reading resident (Go Rockets!) and Boston College graduate, Holmes is the Boston Globe High School Sports Editor. We remind you now that his weekly picks are often made in jest so everyone just calm down when he picks against Everett for 11 straight weeks. Contact him at email@example.com. Follow him on Twitter @GlobeHolmes.
- Craig Larson: A native of West Springfield (Leo Durocher anyone? Tim Daggett?) and Curry College graduate (a proud Colonel!), Larson is the sports editor for the Globe's regional sections: South, West and North, as well as a frequent contributor on the college beat. Abington to Xaverian: it all starts with the schools. Have a compelling story idea? Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him on Twitter @GlobeLars.
- Zuri Berry: Berry attended the same high school as sports legends O.J. Simpson and Joe DiMaggio. (Guess which one is his hero.) He's a South Boston resident (formerly of Eastie) and the editor of the High School Sports blog as well as the go-to-guy for everything high school sports on Boston.com. Contact him at email@example.com and follow him on Twitter @GlobeSchools for all of the latest updates.
