Another week, another change at the top of the Division 1 WisSports.net Coaches Poll, as Wauwatosa East becomes the third different Greater Metro Conference team to occupy the spot in the first three weeks. The Red Raiders took down former number one Brookfield East last Friday and are now 6-0. Speaking of the Greater Metro, teams from he GMC also sit at third (Brookfield Central), sixth (Brookfield East), and ninth (Sussex Hamilton). Neenah is up to second from fifth.
Wisconsin Lutheran remain atop the rankings this week as the Vikings are off to a 7-0 start to the season. Nicolet is again second, while Pewaukee has moved up from fifth to third. River Falls finally got its season underway last week with a couple wins, while fifth-ranked Onalaska has yet to get started. Seymour and Monroe are new to this week's rankings.
Racine St. Catherine's is a unanimous pick as the top team in Division 3, while fellow unbeaten Lake Country Lutheran is a strong favorite in the number two spot. Saint John's NW Academies is third, while Edgerton makes a big jump from seventh to fourth. East Troy slides just one spot despite a pair of losses last week, both coming against larger competition, however. Xavier dropped out of the top five after suffering its second loss of the season, as the Hawks are now eighth. Altoona and Wisconsin Dells are new to the poll this week.
Cuba City didn't start until last week, but the Cubans have played four games since last Tuesday's poll came out, winning all in dominating fashion. To no surprise, legendary head coach Jerry Petitgoue's group is number one. The Prairie School remains second despite a loss to D3 top-ranked Racine St. Catherine's. Cameron moves up from sixth to third, while Darlington and Roncalli round out the top five. Unbeaten Cashton is the only new team in this week's poll.
Blair-Taylor opened the door with a loss to Cashton last Friday, and three different teams received number one votes. Lourdes Academy was second last week and would have been likely to move into the top position, but lost to New London last week. The Knights did receive a couple top votes, but ultimately stayed in teh number two spot. Instead, ascending from third to first this week is unbeaten Sheboygan Lutheran, the state champion in 2019 and one of the favorites last winter before the shutdown. Blair-Taylor falls to third this week.
