A-C Valley (15-4) is up one spot to No. 4, and Coudersport (17-3) joins the Top Five at No. 5 after beating previous No. 4 Otto-Eldred, which drops to No. 6.
Northern Potter (11-5) joins the Top 15 with Cranberry (10-7), who was No. 10 last week, falling out.
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.
