1, East Ascension (9-3): Winning Dutchtown’s tourney last weekend was a key step for the Division I Spartans.
2, Lee (7-0): Strength of schedule may be questioned, but unbeaten is notable and the Division II Patriots have done it.
3, Dutchtown (5-2): The Griffins of Division I have made an impressive start and look to build on it.
4, St. Amant (6-5) and St. Joseph’s Academy (2-2): Records can be deceptive, which is why it makes sense to expect more from these Division I powers.
