The Associated Press released their weekly High School Football rankings late Tuesday evening, and when the dust settled, eight Tri-State high schools found themselves ranked in the top ten of their respective classes.
Friday night's Mater Dei versus Reitz game was an instant classic that fans on both sides will remember for a long time. Unfortunately, someone had to lose, and this time around that someone was the Panthers 29-28, causing a ripple effect that has shown itself in this week's Associated Press state rankings.
The final game of the regular season wrapped up Friday night for all schools in the Tri-State as they turn their attention to Sectionals this weekend. For the following seven young men, they made sure to end the regular season with a bang.
As is customary for the Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA), the pairings for the upcoming Sectional round of the state tournament were announced on Sunday, one week before the regular season wraps up. The pairings announced show some teams will face familiar foes to open the tournament, while others will match up against teams they have not yet seen.
The weekly Associated Press rankings for Indiana High School Football were released on Tuesday, and once again, three teams from the Tri-State area find themselves sitting pretty on top of their respective classes.
After a nail-biting victory over the Harrison Warriors, the Mater Dei Wildcats sit atop the Associated Press Class 2A poll for the fourth week in a row. Meanwhile, thanks to their 35-30 win over the Castle Knights, Reitz finds themselves sitting on top in Class 4A. But they're not the only teams in the area getting props.
