Thanks to a number of postponements, it was a fairly uneventful week around the state which led to very little shakeup in the rankings. Nonetheless, it’s Monday morning, so it’s time to update them. We detail some of the key movement below.
In Class 1A, the top six teams remain the same, led by Grand View Christian (13-0). The Thunder continue to blast teams, winning games by an average of 39.8 points a game behind the sterling play of senior guards(25.2 points a game) and (18.6), and junior big man (9.0, 14.7 rebounds, 5.2 blocks). Newman Catholic (10-1) drops a few spots from #7 down to #9 following their loss to Osage.
Central Lyon (11-0) continues to pace Class 2A, averaging 83.2 points a game. They are joined in the top-5 by Aplington-Parkersburg (10-1), Western Christian (11-1), Boyden-Hull (10-1), and Pella Christian (9-3). Mid-Prairie (12-0) joins the rankings this week at #9, giving the River Valley Conference three ranked teams (#7 Monticello, 12-0; #8 Camanche, 11-1).
The top six teams remain the same in Class 3A, led by Little Hawkeye Conference rivals Pella (10-2) and Dallas Center-Grimes (7-2). Clear Creek Amana (9-1) rejoins the rankings after being out for a few weeks. The Clippers check in at #10.
Ames (7-1) didn’t play a game last week and still leads Class 4A. Waukee Northwest (10-1) took care of business, setting up a monster game on Friday night, when the #2 Wolves travel up to #1 Ames for the game of the year. Cedar Falls (7-2) joins the rankings at #8 following their big win at then-#3 Iowa City West (7-2), who fell from #3 all the way down to #10 following a two-loss week.
