Division 1

It is all about the Greater Metro Conference in Division 1, where GMC squads make up five of the top teams. That includes number one Brookfield Central, who is already 3-0 on the year. Kimberly is second, followed by Brookfield East, Wauwatosa East, and Neenah in the top five. Sussex Hamilton followed up an opening loss to Tosa East with a win over Menomonee Falls, but it was a costly one, as Patrick Baldwin, Jr. left with an injury, and his status going forward remains uncertain.

Division 2

Nicolet lost three high-level Division 1 players off last year's team, including James Graham III, who is opting out of this season to graduate at semester and enroll early at Maryland. However, the Knights still have USC recruit Kobe Johnson and right now, it's enough to occupy the top spot in the Division 2 Coaches Poll. River Falls and Onalaska haven't played a game yet, but are second and third, respectively. 

Division 3

What a loaded group of teams it is in Division 3, especially in the top portion of the poll. Not surprisingly, Racine St. Catherine's is number one, as the Angels have a pair of D1 backcourt players in Kamari McGee and Tyrese Hunter. With elite junior Brandon Podziemski leading the way, Saint John's NW Academies is second, followed by Lake Mills, Xavier, and Lake Country Lutheran.

Division 4

Cuba City has been forced to pause activities and haven't played a game yet, but the Cubans are the clear number one team in the voting for Division 4. The Prairie School is second, while Darlington gives the SWAL two of the top three teams in the division. Roncalli and Edgar have looked good in the early-going and also find themselves in the top five.

Division 5

The voting in Division 5 was very close, but ultimately Blair-Taylor narrowly finished on top of the voting for the first Division 5 Coaches Poll. Both Lourdes Academy, who is second, and Sheboygan Lutheran, the third-ranked team, received first-place votes as well. Rounding out the top five are Randolph and Hustisford. Five of the top ten teams have yet to play a game yet this year.
