Springfield Central continues its steady climb up the POWERADE state rankings, as the Golden Eagles now reside at No. 2 after dispatching rival Springfield Commerce last week.
The other big news concerns the team Springfield Central replaced in the No. 2 spot - Brockton. The Boxers had won 15 straight, but they played poorly in a 68-50 loss to Charlestown in the finals of the Comcast Tournament. Brockton shot just 9-for-22 from the free throw line in the loss and dropped to No. 6 as a result.
