Welcome to the fifth edition of the 2022 High School Power Rankings! We’re getting towards the end of the “regular season” of high school competition. State tournaments have already begun, particularly in the western half of the country. Many more will fill the next few weekends. The rankings can be permanently found on our Youth Rankings page.
The final rankings from next week will be used to determine the final invitations to the 2022 High School National Invite; many bids have been sent out on a rolling basis.

- The New England rankings are looking more stabilized after Amherst Invitational. #21 Lexington is now the top team in Massachusetts: they haven’t lost in league play and crushed Amherst in the tournament final. Their early losses to Madison, West Windsor, and Jackson Reed keep them lower in the rankings. Four Rivers, with a pair of wins over Amherst and a split with Northfield Mount Hermon (NMH), is in the second spot in MA. Amherst drops just outside of the top 25. NMH drops out of the rankings as well after going 3-3 at AI.
- Cleveland moves up seven spots to #11 after an upset victory over #6 Ingraham.
