Rankings By Division
As it stands so far, here are the rankings by division:
|Clarksburg (2-0)||Churchill (3-0)||Einstein (3-0)|
|Northwest (2-0)||Walter Johnson (1-1)||Wheaton (2-1)|
|Sherwood (1-1)||Wootton (1-1)||Gaithersburg (2-1)|
|Quince Orchard (1-2)||Blair (0-1)||Blake (0-1)|
|Poolesville (0-3)||Whitman (0-2)||Rockville (0-2)|
|Paint Branch (0-2)|
Clarksburg vs Northwest will certainly be a big game for both teams. This is an interesting matchup as both teams somewhat mirror each other in their makeup. Both have dominant H1s, solid H2s, strong middle play, and skilled setters. I predict a close match that will be determined by oppo play, and team defense, with the edge going to the Coyotes.
WJ and Wootton is a very interesting matchup today. Although both teams have talent at all positions, I expect Wootton's size and athleticism to overtake WJ here.
Einstein is now sitting on top of the East and may keep their position there for the rest of the regular season. Wheaton will have more shots at them, but Einstein, lead by senior outside hitter Tobias Clark, is currently the team to beat in this division.
