It’s the time of year for the latest edition of team ranks. We are permanently replacing rankings entailing opinion pieces of one author with a new, AP poll style voting system. A panel of seven voters from the community not currently affiliated with any particular high school cast ballots, ranking ten teams in order. A first place ranking received 10 points, a second place 9, and so on. Thanks goes out to all our voters for taking the time to parse through all of the stats so far, contributing their eye test as moderators, and making some tough calls.
Without further ado, here are the 2015-2016 mid season top ten. All teams here are “A” teams for their school, unless specified. Followup commentary and discussion will be the topic of GPQB’s next podcast.
- Manheim Township A, 68 Points (5 first place)
- State College, 65 Points (2 first place)
- Delaware Valley, 52 Points
- Lehigh Valley Academy, 51 Points
- Great Valley, 38 Points
- PALCS, 28 Points
- Winchester Thurston, 26 Points
- Henderson, 21 Points
- Cedar Crest, 12 Points
- Manheim Township B, 11 Points
Also receiving votes were Alagar Homeschool (10) and Allderdice (2). Congratulations to all these teams for their hard work and many wins. We will see where they go next in the spring tournament slate!
The voters were: Ryan Bilger, Chris Chiego, Ben Herman, Andrew Nadig, Victor Prieto, Steven Silverman, and Bill Tressler.
