With only a few regulars season games left this week before regions start, every game is crucial for seeding in the region tournaments.  With some great late season matchups this past week, there was bound to be some movement in the rankings.  Most notably in  Class A and Class B were we see some new faces emerge late in the year.

Class AA:

Very simply… pick names out of a hat 1-10 and that’s as scientific as these rankings.  Class AA is WIDE OPEN as every team has proven they can beat each other. RC Central won the rematch of the Rapid City schools and they regain the top spot. Aberdeen Central is the hottest team as they’ve won six on a row and now jump up to #6 this week.
