Division 1

Madison East's 96-80 loss to crosstown rival Madison West last week meant there was a good likelihood of a new number one team in Division 1 this week, and that's exactly what happened. Perhaps a bit of a surprise, but Sussex Hamilton leap-frogs not only Madison East, but also Brookfield Central to go from number three to the top spot. East falls to third this week. It was an interesting week, with seven of the top ten teams losing. Brookfield East, Madison Memorial, and Racine Park dropped out of the poll. Madison La Follette was the top newcomer, rocketing to number six this week. West Allis Central and Appleton West move into the rankings as well.

Division 2

Nicolet continues to be a unanimous top pick in the Division 2 Coaches Poll, but Milwaukee Washington made a big move this week, going from fourth to second despite four losses this year (three of them out-of-state). That's one spot in front of unbeaten Green Bay Southwest, who drops one position to third. Milwaukee Bay View is 12-1 on the season and enters the rankings in a tie for the tenth spot with Milwaukee Lutheran.

Division 3

Two-loss Martin Luther continues to hold down the top spot in Division 3, which saw a good amount of movement elsewhere in the poll. Brookfield Academy went down and dropped from fourth to sixth. Dominican lost and stayed put at seven, and Southern Door and Freedom suffered defeats and slid completely out of the top ten. New teams this week are Lake Mills and Wrightstown.

Division 4

There wasn't a ton of movement in the Division 4 poll this week, as Roncalli continues to be a unanimous #1 team. Lourdes Academy slipped in front of Clear Lake for the three spot. Mineral Point dropped from sixth to tenth after a 27-point loss to Caledonia (MN) at the Midwest Player's Classic. The Pointers led that game at halftime before the wheels fell off in the second half. They played without Brayden and Mason Dailey, whose status going forward with the program remains in doubt.

Division 5

Sheboygan Lutheran is again a unanimous top-ranked team in Division 5, while Columbus Catholic narrowly holds on to the number two spot. Unbeaten Randolph hops up one spot to third, as Hustisford's first loss of the year tumbles the Falcons from number three to number seven this week. Wild Rose and Almond-Bancroft move into the poll this week, while Pecatonica and Shullsburg drop out after just one week.
