Girls HS Rankings Week 4: Some New Faces Emerge

Morris vs Aspetuck from this past weekend. Photo Morris Rugby.

Teams are wrapping up their seasons but we have some changes to make anyway. 

We made a mistake last week not getting City Honors into the rankings as we intended. Our fault. And then City Honors made it even more obvious by winning the Western NY championship. Isolated championships like these are tough to track but City Honors is objectively a good teams — we feel the same way about Morris — and we are favoring 15s over 7s in this rankings to a certain extent, so City Honors moves in at #12.

Aspetuck gets in thanks to a really good showing at the Mid-Atlantic Showcase. In that tournament there was also a result we need to discuss: Aspetuck beat Doylestown. Now, we've seen Doylestown play and they are objectively one of the best teams in the country. And yes, normally we shrug at reports of "we had injuries" or "we were missing players." But this time we know that this was a very, very young version of Doylestown, and with them playing an end-of-season tournament that had no bearing on any kind of championship, we're going to say this: beating Doylestown is evidence that Aspetuck is a good team and should be ranked, but this wasn't evidence that Aspetuck should be ranked above Doylestown not so we think Doylestown should be penalized for the result.
