Some great games were played this past weekend! And several of them helped shake up the rankings.
We are confidant that progress is happening in every team whether the statistics properly reflect it for everyone.... well that is never the full story.
But for all of the boys of Autumn, and the families and leaders who've invested so much in them, we present to you the newest revision of the rankings.
To all the teams who moved up; DON'T STOP! And to all the teams who had a setback, EVERY champion has had many setbacks! The thing that made them better was that they didn't stop trying!
The Initial 2014 National Rankings are finally released for Division 3 Homeschool teams!
Defending champions, San Antonio FEAST & Stephenville maintaining their top 2 positions. Austin metro teams are close behind.
The Freeman Scoring computers waited until a sufficient number of teams have the prerequisite 3-game stats, before releasing a meaningful database.
Only those homeschool teams who've reported results from 3 regular season games are included.
In 3 weeks there have been 3 different #1 teams in Division 1. This week Central Virginia bounced back with a solid victory in interstate play and made a significant statement. They edged off previous #1, Tulsa NOAH, who slipped to #2.
Lighthouse of Springfield stayed at #3, while Noblesville Lions scooted into #4. Anderson, stinging from a tough week, dropped 3 spots, all the way to 5th.
The rest of the top 10 stayed somewhat stationary, while some very huge reordering happened throughout the rest of the charts.
We will soon reveal the debut rankings of Divisions 2 & 3, as soon as the Freeman scoring computers are confident that the entire nation's schools have had an opportunity to play the required 3 games. Any team who does not report the minimum 3 games will not receive a ranking until they have met the reporting requirements. Forfeits, nonvarsity, and inter-divisional play does not factor into rankings.
the Internals of the Division 1 Rankings
Protect your Maxpreps profile against inappropriate game entries. If a game is listed which your team is not really playing, remove it BEFORE a score is posted. Otherwise you'll have to appeal to Maxpreps' staff in order to rectify the situation. Don't be guilty of this defamation. If your varsity team is playing a JV squad of a powerhouse team, DO NOT list their varsity squad as your opponent. Instead, list "non-varsity opponent" and in the details you can list the actual game details, including which team's JV you are competing with. A scrimmage should never be reported as a game, on Maxpreps. Only completed games played by established traditional game rules with certified game officials should be reported as games, in your W/L records.
