Anderson Cavaliers convinced the Freeman Scoring computers by shutting out their first 2 opponents. They racked up an accumulative 103-0 in the scoring differential. This was enough to leap over the Richmond Disciples who played better than expected against an elite Virginia powerhouse, and remained essentially stationary in the national ratings.
The West Region is continuing a strong presence at the top, holding 6 of the top 13 slots.
A proud moment is also worth noting for the younger organizations of the North. A more subtle factor that is emerging in the top 20. For the first time, the Northern Region has 5 teams in the top 20!
