After games ending Monday, March 12
It was a very close call during the preseason when we were selecting our top teams in the POWERADE Arizona Weekly Rankings. Both Mountain Pointe and Hamilton looked to be early title contenders, and it was a toss-up as to which one's better. So it's little surprise that we've already flipped the two early in the season. The Huskies have taken over the top spot in our ranks, and Mountain Pointe has dropped just one spot. But the margin is still slim, and there's plenty of other outstanding squads in the state, so we're not expecting the Huskies to be wire-to-wire winners.
1. Hamilton (7-1) Last week: No. 2
2. Mountain Pointe (5-2-1) Last week: No. 1
3. Desert Mountain (8-3) Last week: No. 7
