The She-Wolves are a perfect 11-0 on the season and are joined in the Top 5 by the only other unbeaten District 9 team, Otto-Eldred (8-0), who is up one spot from No. 3 to No. 2. Kane (8-1), whose only loss is to North Clarion, is in at No. 3 with Coudersport (8-2) at No. 4 and Punxsutawney (6-5) at No. 5.
Clarion (4-6) joins the ratings this week at No. 15 while St. Marys drops 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.
