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!
A dramatic shift took place in the high altitude slots of the national rankings, this weekend. Tulsa NOAH backed into the top spot while awaiting the first week of Oklahoma prep competition. This was in large part due to a less-than-expected performance in Springfield Lighthouse's opening game as the newest team to play in the Missouri High School League (guest status). Lighthouse played a dominating game but the score didn't know that.
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!
