Rocky River pulled off the biggest win in school history Friday, upsetting reigning N.C. 4AA champion Butler 28-21.

The Ravens’ win, their 8th straight, vaulted Rocky River into the Sweet 16 for the first time. Rocky River jumped in at No. 13. The Ravens were the only new team in. A.L. Brown, No. 14 last week, dropped out after being shut out 14-0 by Hough.

Butler fell from No. 3 to No. 10, a move that allowed seven teams to move up one spot each.
