New additions to the Super 25

DeKalb (1-0): The Barbs put up 58 points in their Week 1 win against Metea Valley.

Dropping out

Bolingbrook (0-1): Maybe it is a little harsh to drop a team out after losing to Lincoln-Way East in Frankfort. That pretty much happens to every team. But the 42-14 margin was too large and knocks the Raiders out for now.
