While action will heat up in the St. Louis area this week, it officially starts to wind down in Indiana.
The Gateway City Soccer Classic, with 62 boys teams playing at venues all around the St. Louis area this weekend, should help sort out a number of state and regional rankings races. Meanwhile, this week also marks the end of Indiana's regular season play.
This past week saw quite a shakeup from coast-to-coast. Here are a few of the highlights:
Milwaukee Marquette (Wis.) knocked off former SIMA FAB 50 No. 1 Rockhurst Jesuit en route to a Jessic Classic title over the weekend. Both Marquette and Rockhurst will be among the competitors at the Gateway City Soccer Classic this week.
Christian Brothers Academy (N.J.) earned a jump in this week's rankings following a 2-0 showing at the Delbarton Invitational. CBA handled DeMatha Catholic (Md.) and former New York No. 1 Chaminade. Meanwhile, DeMatha stunned host Delbarton School (N.J.) on Sunday to add to its perplexing season of results. The Stags have a win over St. Anthony's (N.Y.) but instate losses to McDonogh School (Md.) and Walt Whitman, along with CBA. St. Anthony's, meanwhile, defeated Archbishop Curley on Sunday, the same Curley squad that beat McDonogh. St. Anthony's also dealt a defeat to perennial Rhode Island power La Salle Academy (R.I.) last week.
Minnechaug (Mass.) is the only new regional No. 1 team this week.
Montgomery (Calif.) went 1-1 in Utah, and the 3-0 setback to unranked Skyline (Utah) took Montgomery out of the chase for SIMA FAB 50 No. 1 and provided more compelling evidence of the quality in Utah.
St. Anthony's (N.Y.) defeated Immaculate Heart Academy (N.J.) over the weekend to remain in a close 1-2 battle with Massapequa (N.Y.) for the state's top billing. Unfortunately, the teams are in separate state associations, meaning they will not face each other this year.
There are no new region No. 1 teams this week as Glastonbury (Conn.), Northern Highlands (N.J.), Parkland (pa.), Walsh Jesuit (Ohio), [Germantown Houston tn-w] (Tenn.), Issaquah (Wash.) and Davis (Utah) retained their top rankings.
