High School Power Rankings: Post-Paideia and Knockout [5/3/19]

Ultiworld’s High School Power Rankings are presented by CUT Camps; all opinions are those of the author. Please support the brands that make Ultiworld possible and check out CUT Camps!

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

Paideia Cup and abbreviated games at Neuqua Knockout offered up some major changes to the rankings. State championships get started this weekend and could redefine the rankings again!

The rankings will eventually be used to determine invitations to the 2019 High School National Invite; currently, we plan to use the rankings published next week 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.

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!

Notes

  • Knoxville defeated Paideia and had a great showing at Pi Cup. They jump up 10 spots into the top five as a result.
  • Franklin has rebounded from some early season struggles and reasserted themselves as one of the best teams in Washington.
  • Welcome to the top 25, USN! Wins over Amherst and Grady in consolation play at Paideia gets them into the rankings.
  • Neuqua Valley got a one point win over Edina at the truncated Neuqua Knockout and got back into the top 25.

Notes

  • Columbia opened up Paideia Cup with an upset over #1 ranked Grady and never looked back, topping Amherst 9-8 in the Pi Cup final.
  • Both Edina and Hopkins have been very impressive this season. Edina won their matchups at Neuqua Knockout, and Hopkins beat CFS and Pennsbury at Pi Cup.
  • Lots of new teams in the rankings this week: Carrboro, Summit, Durham, Madison West, Washington-Lee, and El Cerrito. There’s been a reconfiguring of the North Carolina teams, but states will truly decide the relative rankings this weekend. Madison West got a one point win over Holy Family at Neuqua Knockout. Washington-Lee topped Westfield twice at Spring Fling. El Cerrito has been one of the top teams in California and recently defeated Gunn. How will they fare at Spaghetti Westerns? Summit smashed previously ranked South Eugene and will also be in action at Spaghetti Westerns.
