SD Team Rankings: Week 7


Posted On: 01/21/19 2:10 PM

New #1 in Class B.  Lots of shake-up in both Class AA and Class B.  There were a ton on Top 10 match-ups across the entire state.  IT made for great games and makes for a fresh look at the Top 10 rankings in each class which hopefully creates some discussion.  Enjoy!

Class AA:

SF O’Gorman continues to rise as they knocked off #2 Yankton in a top 5 match-up last week.  SF Roosevelt makes the jump back into the Top 5.  And RC Central joins the Top 10 for the first time this regular season.

Class A:

Tea won an instant classic game as they knocked off #3 St. Thomas More at the Corn Palace.  Weather affected some schedules so lots of teams remained idle and does not affect the middle of the rankings. Aberdeen Roncalli joins for the first time this year after a nice win over Sioux Valley.

White River is your new #1 team as they beat previously top ranked Bridgewater-Emery in a great game.  After the Top 3, there is a ton of shakeup as many teams played each other in Top 10 match-ups. Hanson jumps into the poll at #7 after defeating Parker (Class A #9) and Canistota.
