The Elkers are followed by Clarion-Limestone (9-1), Elk County Catholic (9-1) and Coudersport (8-1). Keystone (8-2) moves up one spot to No. 5 with previous No. 5 North Clarion (9-2) dropping to No. 9 after a loss to Karns City (57-50) last week.

In all, fifteen of the 16 teams (there was a tie for 15th last week) that made up last week’s rankings remain in the Top 15 with only Johnsonburg, which was tied for 13th, dropping out. Curwensville (5-4) joins the ratings in a tie for No. 15 with DuBois Central Catholic (4-7) after a win over the Cardinals last week.

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.
