Another week, another new number one.
Congratulations to Montini for finally taking the number one spot, maybe their supporters on twitter will finally be happy with me.
Welcome back Kenwood. As I mentioned last week, they would be back in the rankings so long as they put together a solid performance in NOLA and they certainly did so.
Naz looks to be back in their early season form, but did they ever really take a step back? Probably not, I think I just panicked a little after their loss to McAuley.
I still remain uncertain with Evanston and Trinity. Evanston’s great comeback win against Loyola is offset by their loss against Niles West, while Trinity just did not look good when I saw them earlier this year. Here’s a tip to crack the rankings, don’t lose to teams you should beat.
So without further delay…

Disappointing finish vs. Evanston, and the schedule doesn’t get any easier.
