There were no changes to my top four this week, although it’s highly unlikely anything will change much in those four spots all season. If anything, the same teams may knock each other around. Rockland is starting to make some noise, with three teams now in the mix including Pearl River, which leaped to No. 6 after being unranked last week.
1. White Plains (5-0): Last week: 1 – Scores just seem to be getting lower for the Tigers, who posted a season-low 192 last week.
2. Scarsdale (5-0): Last week: 2 – The Raiders posted an uncharacteristically-high 223 last week, but still beat Clarkstown South handily.
3. Bronxville (6-0): Last week: 3 – The Broncos are steadily improving, but have not cracked the sub-200 mark this season. Still, they are giving Scarsdale a run for the No. 2 spot in the rankings.
4. Fox Lane (8-0): Last week: 4 – Henrik Rubin played phenomenally last week to keep the Foxes undefeated.
5. Tappan Zee (7-0): Last week: 6 – The Dutchmen are flying high now, but should be challenged when they face stiffer local competition like Pearl River and Suffern.
6. Pearl River (4-1): Last week: N/R – Had to show the Pirates some respect, and they’ve definitely earned it. Pearl River has yet to shoot over 214, and ironically, its only loss was one of the lowest scores in the section (lost
196-198 to North Rockland).
7. John Jay (5-3): Last week: 8 – The Indians dropped a tri-match with White Plains, but still shot a respectable 206 in the loss.
8. Suffern (2-1): Last week: 10 – Another Rockland team getting a nice boost in the rankings, the Mounties should keep the Dutchmen and Pirates honest the rest of the way.
9. Rye (4-1): Last week: 5 – The Garnets have a tough week ahead of them, with matches against White Plains, Bronxville, and Harrison.
10. Somers (3-0): Last week: 9 – Very young and very talented, the Tuskers are definitely a team to keep an eye on this season.
Dropped out: Harrison
