The club rankings are not completely done, but they are close.
We hve a couple of playoffs to keep track of, but certainly the Top 10 is set. Belmont Shore, which was #2 almost the entire year, ends as #1 after beating everyone they needed to beat.
You'll be wondering where Week 18 is ... well we didn't do a Week 18.
Instead, with HS Nationals coming up and us being so busy, we waited a week.
It's been a bit of a hectic week so we're late with these rankings.
Next week we will probably not update the rankings because HS Nationals starts on Thursday, and we'll incorporate this coming weekend's activities (Illinois playoffs, Cascade final, Oregon finals, Wisconsin and Minnesota playoffs) into the rankings for Week 19.
Very few movers this week, but we do see Regis Jesuit jump up significantly.
This is the sort of thing that happens when a team erases an earlier loss with a win, perhaps even a win that surpasses the loss, over the same opponent. Regis beat East and moves up.
These top seven are something.
All are perfectly capable of being #1, and several have been. This HS National Championships club bracket will be like last year's with any game a tossup.
Big movers: Charlotte Tigers pulls off a big win in the North Carolina playoffs and maybe they've got it together now.
