Jan. 8 Boys’ Power Ratings

Despite replacing three starters, the She-Wolves are a perfect 10-0 at the season’s midpoint and are just one of two District 9 teams still unbeaten.

The other unbeaten squad, Otto-Eldred (7-0), checks in at No. 3 behind only North Clarion and Kane (7-1), whose only loss was to North Clarion. Coudersport (7-2) is No. 4 followed by Punxsutawney (4-5) at No. 5.

In all, there are 15 teams in this week’s rating.

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.
