Sunnyside (Ariz.) boys carried an undefeated record into the AZ Showcase final against perennial power Brophy Prep (Ariz.), and came away with an eye-popping 5-1 victory last Monday. That result jumped Sunnyside into the FAB 50 Top 5 and into national title contention.

Tampa Jesuit (Fla.) continued to deliver on a promising season by winning the Tampa Bay Invitational to move back into the boys Top 10 this week.
