Boys 2021 HS Club Rankings Week 9

West Houston made a move.

This was a very weird HS Club Rankings week.

While the top six remain unchanged because they all performed as expected, and perhaps even a bit better than expected, the rest of the Top 50 got a shakeup for a number of reasons:

1. Teams that have been idle a relatively long time lose traction.

2. After the Florida final we went back through the results with a little more context and some of the teams from the Sunshine State dropped down.

3. We found out (just imagine our surprise) that two rankable teams that we thought were single-school were, in fact, HS clubs. That would be Layton Christian and St. Charles Prep. 

4. We reevaluated the San Diego Mustangs after they almost beat Thunder, and we reevaluated Pendleton after they barely beat Westfield.

5. West Houston, SFGG, Downingtown, and Belmont Shore all had high-profile games and all won, most in impressive fashion, and that was a springboard result to move them up anywhere from 11 places to 21 places.

6. We bunched San Diego, Thunder, and Tempe together after San Diego almost beat Thunder, losing in the end 26-20.

Program Spotlight: West Houston Wins a Big One

Liberty, HSE, Tampa, Rock, and Menlo-Atherton all drop out, mostly because they were ranked relatively low anyway and we haven't seen much from them lately. M-A just lost ... but they will have a chance to move up.
