Jan. 7, 2019 Allegheny Grille of Foxburg/ Girls’ Basketball Power Ratings

SHIPPENVILLE, Pa. – Punxsutawney is the No. 1 team in the inaugural Allegheny Grille of Foxburg District 9 Girls’ Basketball Power Ratings for the 2019 season.

The Lady Chucks are 8-0 on the season.

Rounding out the Top Five are St. Marys (7-2), A-C Valley (8-2), Johnsonburg (7-1) and North Clarion (6-2).

In all, 15 teams are rated.

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.

The ratings are voted on by the staff which includes editor Chris Rossetti, Rich Rhoades, who is also the Sports Editor at the Jeffersonian Democrat and Leader-Vindicator, Andy Close, who is the Sports Editor at the Warren Times-Observer, Nate Steis, a contributing writer at from Ridgway, Jake Mercer, an intern with from Ridgway and Jared Bakaysa, a former intern and contributing writer at from Curwensville.
