Welcome to the third edition of the 2019 High School Power Rankings! The rankings can be permanently found on our Youth Rankings page.
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@example.com.
Teams, if you would like to add logos and team information to your Team Pages, follow these instructions!

- Despite a lot of exciting games at the YULA Invite, there was no movement in the top 10 as results largely fell closely to expectations and higher ranked teams won consistently.
- Carolina Friends School won their second straight YULA Invite and has, for now, quelled any doubt that they might not be the number one team in North Carolina.
- Columbia continues to look the part of a strong top 10 team in a peak year. They beat a very good Wilson team by four in semifinals at YULA.
- Edina was solid if not spectacular against top teams at YULA.
- Berkeley dominated #19 Gunn in California league play, 13-7.
- Lexington (MA) debuts in the top 25 this week after playing tight games with CFS, Chapel Hill, and Columbia.
