UPDATED May 17: with a couple of corrections.

We have fewer than 24 hours before the Section II playoff seedings will be announced Wednesday at the NYSPHSAA building in Colonie.

So to get everyone ready, I'll show some standings for local teams as well as this week's New York State Sportswriters rankings for local teams.

Among local teams, South Glens Falls, Greenwich and Salem look like the top seeds in Classes A, C and D. It's pure guesswork, as anything can happen -- Chatham is right behind Greenwich in the Class C state rankings, and Germantown is also undefeated in Class D, although ranked much lower.

A quick correction: It was reported earlier that this year was South Glens Falls' 19th straight Foothills Council title -- it was actually the Bulldogs' 17th straight. South High was runner-up to Queensbury in 2000. Still an impressive streak for the Bulldogs, who shared the title only once -- with Hudson Falls in 2004 -- in that entire span.

Here's the current standings, although I'm sure I'm missing a handful of games here and there. If coaches see inaccurate records, they are invited to help me out by double-checking which games I might be missing or have designated as league/non-league.

Records are league first, then overall, through Monday, May 15:

Highlights of this week's New York State Sportswriters softball poll, which can be seen in its entirety here:

Class D -- Salem remains No. 3 in the state behind Deposit (Section III) and Heuvelton (Section X). Fort Ann is still seventh, while Germantown -- which matches Salem's 16-0 record -- is No. 11. Fort Plain is ranked 19th.

Class C -- Greenwich is ranked fourth and Chatham is right there at No. 5, and Mechanicville is ninth. Other ranked Section II teams include Hoosic Valley is 17th and Lake George is 22nd, and Warrensburg is 10-4. Ticonderoga is ranked 23rd, but the Sentinels await the Section VII playoff seedings.

Class B -- Schuylerville is ranked 24th this week, while the top two Section II are Ichabod Crane (fourth) and Cohoes (seventh).

Class A -- South Glens Falls moved up to No. 7 in Class A with its 17-1 overall mark. Averill Park slipped down to 21st, but the Warriors' 11-7 record is always deceiving because they are a Class A team playing mostly Class AA competition in the Suburban Council. Burnt Hills dropped out of the rankings, but the Spartans, too, will be dropping down to Class A competition in sectionals.

Class AA -- Shenendehowa is ranked seventh in the largest class, with Colonie at No. 16 and Ballston Spa at 19th.
