There's a new No. 1 in the SIMA FAB 50 spring boys rankings, yet it is no stranger to the top spot.

Perennial Georgia power St. Pius (Atlanta, Ga.) inherits the No. 1 ranking this week, just ahead of No. 2 Norman North (Norman, Okla.). St. Pius last finished No. 1 in 2011, while Norman North topped the 2012 spring rankings.
