Coudersport (18-2 through Sunday) is in at No. 2 followed by Elk County Catholic (18-3) at No. 3.

Cameron County (15-4) drops from the ratings after an 0-2 week after being No. 8 a week ago.

Power ratings are different from rankings in that a power rating the rating is based on a combination of current events and overall body of work, which means while previous performances and results are taken into consideration they are not the end all be all of how a team is performing in a particular week whereas a ranking is based on a team’s entire body of work. Because the rankings/power ratings are not used to determine playoff positions or seeings in District 9, we have decided to go to a power rating system to better reflect how a team is currently performing.
