High School Power Rankings: Post-QCTU and Rivertown [3/22/19]

Welcome to the second edition of the 2019 High School Power Rankings! The rankings can be permanently found on our Youth Rankings page.

Because many youth teams have not played yet this season, these rankings should certainly be considered preliminary and will change during the course of the spring. The rankings will eventually be used to determine invitations to the 2019 High School National Invite; currently, we plan to use the rankings published the week of May 6th as the final rankings before final bids are sent out (many bids 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 [email protected].

Teams, if you would like to add logos and team information to your Team Pages, follow these instructions!

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

High School Boys Power Rankings:
Dropped from rankings: Lexington Homeschoolers (KY) (16), Carrboro (NC) (18), North Allegheny (PA) (19), Neuqua Valley (IL) (22)


  • Grady went undefeated at Queen City Tune Up, defeating CFS 12-6 in the final. They had some tough games, though, like their 9-8 win over Wilson in semis.
  • Rivertown Throwdown featured just match play this year and left us with more questions than answers. Only #22 Milford went undefeated, and they played an easy schedule (though they did get a solid win over Fishers).
  • Paideia lost to CFS in semis and dropped a couple spots as CFS retook the top spot among North Carolina teams.
  • Chapel Hill fell five spots after a surprise loss to Durham Academy, 8-7, in their first QCTU game that cost them a spot in the bracket.
  • A feature in last year’s Top 25, Jordan debuted for the first time this season after losing only to CFS and Wilson.
  • 2017 HSNI winner Catholic rejoined the rankings after a solid weekend at RTTD, going 4-1 with wins over Pi and Fox Valley.
  • Holy Family, Catholic, Fox Valley, Fishers, and Brebeuf all had mixed results with wins and losses to one another. #1 seed Lexington Pi struggled this weekend, going 3-3 with a brutal 11-2 loss to Neuqua Valley, and fell out of the rankings.


  • Two top 10 teams fell out of the top 25 for different reasons. Marcus star Skye Fernandez graduated early and is now enrolled at UT Austin. Neuqua Valley had a rough showing at Rivertown Throwdown.
  • We’ve docked Chapel Hill a few spots because their current team is more representative of a club team than a high school one. During sanctioned fall play, they were still the beneficiaries of being a combo team, but they are even more stacked in unsanctioned play this spring. Similarly, East Chapel Hill played well enough at QCTU to be ranked, but they were not representative of their high school program.
  • Mount Notre Dame debuts in the top 25 after going 2-0 at Rivertown, including a win over Neuqua Valley.
  • Woodrow Wilson drops behind HB Woodlawn after falling to them 8-7 at QCTU.
