Another blizzard caused some rescheduling of games that would have affected rankings more we think… That being said there is a new #1 team in class AA.  Some shifting around but only one new team to any of the top tens and that is also in class AA.

Class AA:

Upset of the year so far was Watertown over Brandon Valley.  The #1 team fell to unranked Watertown and as a result the Arrows find their way in the #10 spot this week.  SF O’Gorman climbs to the top spot for the first time this year as they have won 5 in a row and beaten some really good teams in that stretch.

Class A:

Some matchups that did affect the top team included Sioux Falls Christian over Dell Rapids and Lennox over Vermillion.  I would expect these games to continue to have an affect on the rankings moving forward.  St. Thomas More schedule also picks up in difficulty the second half of the year.

Class B:

Viborg-Hurley solidified their #1 spot after a very convincing win of Howard. Howard played #3 DeSmet much closer however still lost to the Bulldogs.  White River beat Lyman and upset of the week goes to Groton Area as they knocked off previous #4 Aberdeen Christian.
