Final Week of Action...
National Champions Declared Next Week
Two homeschool teams competed for a Georgia state championship in the new GICAA. (Kings Academy defeated Johnson Ferry for the Division 2 state title).
Evangel Christian was runner up in the Alabama Christian Conference.
5 Homeschool teams are competing in various divisions of Texas State Championship games!
There remains some incomplete data to be added to the top teams in Division 1 rankings. While puzzling to us all, we know the 3 teams at the top of Division 1 are all very comparable. The best hunch we had for the gap between them was that the Saturday night score of Lighthouse's win over Christ Prep somehow didn't get included in the weekend's Freeman Scoring tabulations.
When our analysts researched further they found evidence to support this. They went to Ned Freeman's own website (Calpreps.com) and checked his database. Sure enough, he only had one loss registered to Christ Prep ( to Maysville ), and not the weekend loss to Lighthouse. Even though the Maxpreps team page is updated, the data used for the ratings did not include the Saturday result. The Christ Prep power rating of 1.1 based upon an 8-1 record, and not an 8-2 record.
All of the teams need to not only make sure all of the data is correct on your team pages, but also check your opponent's pages to make sure they're getting all the credit they deserve; because their ranking effects your ranking.
We have one week to get all this resolved.
