The top of the rankings haven't changed in a few weeks, but there was quite an adjustment throughout the SIMA FAB 50s this past week thanks to several California teams.
Wins by St. John Bosco (Calif.) and JSerra (Calif.) boys AND Mater Dei (Calif.), Amador Valley (Calif.), St. Francis-Mountain View (Calif.), Carlsbad (Calif.) and [Flintridge Sacred Heart (Calif.) girls over SIMA FAB 50-ranked teams jostled the rankings between No. 10 and 50 this week.
Some teams that won actually got pushed down a couple spots to account for the latest round of results featurin Top 25-ranked squads. St. John Bosco and JSerra won their way into the Top 25 boys rankings this week and thus leapfrogged a number of ranked teams. Amador Valley and St. Francis made major jumps in the girls rankings while Carlsbad and Flintridge Sacred Heart make return visits to the SIMA FAB 50.
This starts a bit of a transitional week around the country. Florida girls wrap up regular season play. Florida boys are close to follow, with some teams ending this week. Meanwhile, Texas teams start district play.
With no major tournaments on tap this week, the rankings should be a calm period with limited movement, which will last for a couple weeks until the playoffs kick in in Florida and Hawaii.
