I got a little bolder with this week’s power rankings, in Westchester/Putnam and Rockland.
Fox Lane did enough over the last two weekends to earn the top spot in Westchester/Putnam over John Jay. Just by a smidge, but it was enough. What I kept hearing when I took over the beat was that Fox Lane was the better tournament team and John Jay the better dual meet team. That appears to be bearing out. If John Jay looks more impressive in their upcoming duals, I can easily flip them back.
Things got shaken up even more in Rockland. I promised before the week that if North Rockland finished ahead of Suffern at the Kohl tournament, it would get the No. 1 slot. Who I was promising, I’m not sure. But hey, I’m a man of my word. So up the Red Raiders go. There was movement at the bottom too. After Nyack and Nanuet finished near the bottom at Kohl (following some dual meet losses the previous week) I felt I had to give Tappan Zee a shot. The Dutchmen get the 4-spot. Nyack moves down to 5.
