firstname.lastname@example.org It seems I have a habit of getting teams fired up with my rankings. This school year is the first I've been responsible for placing our area high school volleyball and basketball teams into weekly top-10 lists. It's been an adventure. In volleyball, Williamsport, Hedgesville, Smithsburg and Thomas Johnson were the four best teams. The Eagles got the No. 1 nod in our first rankings, which I followed up with a column stating that any of the four would be worthy of the top spot.

St. Maria Goretti no longer carries its long-standing oh-for in the Baltimore Catholic League boys basketball standings.

The Gaels' last win in BCL competition came on Jan. 18, 2008, in a 55-49 win over Calvert Hall. “They were so much bigger than us and were a matcup problem,” said Goretti coach Amrit Rayfield. “It wasn't a pretty game in a small gym, but we did a good job defensively.” The Gaels (9-6, 1-5)

"He could have gone to a lot of camps," Dickman said. "Instead of being ranked one of the top 25 players in the nation, he could have been in the top five.

By SHELDON SHEALER Staff Writer FREDERICK, Md. - This was a year of questions for St. John's at Prospect Hall's boys' basketball team. Now, the only question is will the Vikings go undefeated and claim at least one national championship. Monday, St. John's took over as No. 1 in the National Prep Poll, the most established national rankings, compiled by Doug Huff, sports editor of the Wheeling (W.Va.) Intelligencer. Huff said although St. John's early schedule hasn't been overly demanding, the team's remaining 14 games will determine if its No. 1 ranking is valid.
