Moniteau can add another signature win this week when it plays No. 4 Karns City (14-5), who owns District 9’s longest active win streak at eight. Punxsutawney (13-4) rounds out the Top Five.
A pair of teams enter the ratings this week, and they happen to tie at No. 11 with the spot occupied by both DuBois (9-8) and Otto-Eldred (12-7). Keystone and St. Marys fall out of the Top 15.
Power ratings are different from rankings in that a power rating the rating is based on current events. While previous performances and results are part of the consideration, they are not the end all be all of how a team is performing in a particular week whereas performance based on a team’s entire body of work usually encompasses rankings. 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.
