High School Power Rankings: Post-Neuqua Knockout Edition [4/27/18], Presented By Universe Point

Welcome to the fifth edition of the 2018 High School Power Rankings, presented by Universe Point cleats! The rankings can be permanently found on our Youth Rankings page.

The rankings will continue to be updated during the course of the spring. The rankings will eventually be used to determine invitations to the 2018 High School National Invite; currently, we plan to use the rankings published the week of May 7th as the final rankings before final bids are sent out (many bids have been and will be sent out on a rolling basis).

If you have additional information about tournaments or team strength that you would like to be considered for the High School Power Rankings, please email editor@ultiworld.com.

Without further ado, here are the Top 25 teams in the Boys’ and Girls’ High School Divisions!

Notes

  • Whoa, Jordan! The surprise North Carolina upstart shocked Carolina Friends to claim the NC state title this past weekend, and they fly up the rankings as a result.
  • Great River looked like the real deal at Neuqua Knockout, surging up seven spots after getting a win over Kentucky Pi.
  • Center Grove’s Neuqua Knockout win edged them higher in the top 10.
  • Paideia’s solid performance at NK — including a win over the host team — nudges them into the top 25.
  • Pennsbury made the final at Born To Dive (lost to Westfield) and snags the final spot in the rankings.

Notes

  • Roosevelt’s dominant performance at Neuqua Knockout — despite playing some games while missing some star players — shows not only how good they are but how good the Seattle youth scene is. Seattle teams moved up across the board.
  • High Country Homeschoolers took down the North Carolina crown, but the competition between them, East Chapel Hill, and Chapel Hill was fierce.
  • HB Woodlawn dips a bit after taking a big loss to Roosevelt in the final.
  • Neuqua Valley is the week’s biggest mover after a strong weekend at their home tournament.
  • Welcome Durham and Fox Chapel to the top 25!
