Almost everyone at the top did what was expected, and that, ins some ways, includes Herriman. We long suspected that Herriman's earlier 24-20 loss to Snow Canyon was not going to be repeated. That turned out to be the case - Herriman beat Snow Canyon well 41-19 to win the Utah state title.

As a result, Herriman can now bump up to where we think they should be - #5.

Charlotte Catholic moves up because they won their state final against a very strong Providence team 57-0. That's an impressive result.

Ravenwood, Tennessee state winners, finally get in the rankings after we get a current result for them (cautionary tale everyone) while Nakahi from Idaho slip in, also.




It's interesting that in the middle and lower reaches of the rankings, the single-school teams are not holding their own against the HS clubs. The very best varsity teams are, likely, better than many of the best clubs, but lower down the balance of power shifts.

We're looking forward to a rollicking National Invitational starting tomorrow, with the top eight represented. Greenwich, we know, is miffed to be in the lower tier. But Chapin may very well be a better squad. Both get a chance to prove themselves.


Virtually all men living in the U.S. must register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday.
