Sheesh!!! What a week.  Class B is a mess.  Class A has a lot of unknowns after about the top 5-6.  Class AA is SF Lincoln then a wide open race; take your pick.  Here is this week’s Top 10 rankings:

Class AA:

SF Lincoln knocked of Brandon Valley in the #1 vs #2 matchup last week. Jared Jaros is a serious contender for Player fo the Year in SD as he is the big difference maker for that team.  O’Gorman continues it’s surge up to #2 this week.  Huron and Watertown made big statement wins and climb back up the rankings.

Class A:

#5 Lennox almost did it; they almost knocked of #1 Tea.  It took a 40 point performance from Noah Freidel including the game winning shot with 2 seconds left to keep Tea alive at #1.  SF Christian beat St. Thomas More in the other top 5 matchup this week.  Little Wound jumps into the top ten for the first time all the way up at #7 after some nice wins including one over Red Cloud.  Speaking of Red Cloud, they fall out after a few loses but mostly the loss to star player Ale Rama who is out for the remainder of the year hurts them here.
