There wasn’t much movement across of all our rankings after last weekend’s results. This week promises to be filled with change as some road games for the top teams present major challenges.

Ohio Division I

The big games last week did not disappoint. Colerain retains its top spot in the rankings after a thrilling overtime victory over St. Xavier. The Bombers are the the biggest mover in the poll, falling two notches down to  No. 7. Life doesn’t get any easier for Colerain as they will try and avenge last seasons loss to Division II-III No. 1 La Salle this Friday.

Wayne solidified its No. 2 ranking with a huge win over Moeller. The Warriors travel to a reeling Lakota West team this weekend. Big Moe has a difficult challenge at No. 4 Mason.

There are no new members in this week’s rankings but expect some movement after Week 3 with eight of our Top 10 teams on the road.

Ohio Division II-III

Shooting up the charts with a bullet is Princeton. The Vikings enter the rankings for the first time after a huge win over Division I No. 9 Springfield. They will be tested once again hosting Division IV-VII No. 5 Dunbar.

Troy joins Princeton making its initial appearance in the rankings after taking down Northwest and replacing the in the Top 10.

Top ranked La Salle will take on Division I No. 1 Colerain in the Queen City’s marquee matchup on Friday.

Ohio Division IV-VII

Class acts highlight our small school rankings. The Top 10 has legitimate Division IV state title contenders with No. 1 Indian Hill, No. 2 Alter, No. 3 Wyoming and No. 4 Clinton-Massie.

Mariemont is the only newcomer to the rankings; the Warriors are big up front and have no problem flexing their muscle.

Friday’s action includes high scoring No. 1 Indian Hill on the road at unbeaten Roger Bacon who has yet to give up a point this season.

Northern Kentucky

There is No. 1 Simon Kenton and No. 2 Ryle, then a gaggle of geese trying to make their case for legitimacy in northern Kentucky. Standing out amongst the crowd has is something that all other teams have yet to define.

Campbell County continues to be the feel-good story of 2016. The Camels took down county rival NewCath and knocking them out of the rankings. Next up for Campbell County is the high scoring No. 7 Cooper.

Highlands has a chance to redeem itself on the road at No. 2 Ryle on Friday. A loss could knock the Bluebirds out of the rankings.
