The top four teams went undefeated this week to remain steady. Desert Mountain fell behind Chaparral early and couldn’t claw back, and drops a spot to No. 6. Gilbert jumps into the top-5 with an easy win over Desert Ridge. Corona del Sol played better this week and jumps three spots to No. 7. Marcos de Niza enters the rankings with an impressive start, including a win over Mountain View. The Toros drop to No. 9 with the loss, while Brophy falls to 10 after getting upset by Horizon. Red Mountain lost twice last week to fall from the rankings.

2. Nogales 5-1

3. Sierra Linda 6-1

4. Shadow Mountain 9-0

5. Poston Butte 7-1

6. Sahuaro 6-2

7. Saguaro 4-3

8. Salpointe 5-2

9. Greenway 3-1

10. Queen Creek 2-0

Poston Butte was upset by Combs, which allowed for everyone else in the top-5 to move up a spot. The Broncos drop to No. 5, while Sahuaro jumps up to No. 6 with an impressive week capped by a win over Salpointe. Saguaro lost on a buzzer beater to Shadow Mountain but won its other two games this week and sticks at No. 7, while Salpointe checks in at No. 8. Greenway and Queen Creek went undefeated last week to stay in the top-10 while Thunderbird drops out.

Division III

1. Gilbert Christian 4-0

2. Thatcher 2-0

3. Valley Christian 1-2

4. Combs 3-1

5. Chinle 2-0

Not surprisingly, Gilbert Christian stays at the top after a win over Valley Christian. The Trojans are under .500 but were competitive against the Knights so they stick at No. 3, while Thatcher moves up to No. 2. Combs enters the rankings after a victory over then-No. 1 (D-II) Poston Butte, while Chinle stays at No. 5. Scottsdale Christian drops from the rankings.

Division IV

1. Duncan 2-0

2. Yuma Catholic 5-0

3. Joy Christian 4-0

4. Desert Christian 7-1

5. Valley Lutheran 2-0

The top four teams went undefeated this week and stay in their spots. Arizona Lutheran had a nice win last week against Valley Christian but then lost to Veritas Prep, so it drops out of the rankings, replaced by an undefeated Valley Lutheran squad.
