As I said last week, now that I know when the state rankings come out every week and where to find them, I'll post weekly about them.
Should I have been aware of the state ranking schedule during week one of the season rather than this late in the year? Yeah, probably. But we live and we learn so thank you for understanding.
In Class A, Queensbury (12-4), Amsterdam (11-5) and Gloversville (10-5) all received honorable mention votes, again.
In Class B, Glens Falls (14-2) moved up one spot and are ranked ninth. Tuesday night, the Indians beat Amsterdam 74-68. The win moved Glens Falls into sole possession of first place in the Foothills Council.
Schuylerville (10-5) received honorable mentions votes.
In Class C, Lake George (16-0) remains undefeated and atop the state rankings. The Warriors have a serious shot at finishing the season undefeated in both league play and overall record.
Since I'm new to the area, I am not sure the last time (if ever) Lake George has done that. I'll do some reporting on it in the coming weeks, but if anyone reading this knows the answer, feel free to tweet/ email me.
Hoosick Falls (11-4) remains at No. 9. Granville (12-2) is ranked 14th and Ticonderoga comes in at No. 17. Both teams moved up one spot, respectively.
In Class D, Whitehall (11-3) is ranked 15th, and Argyle (12-4) sits three spots below at No. 18. These two teams play each other on Friday at Argyle High School.
Adirondack league playoff picture
The Adirondack championships are set to take place next week with the semifinals on February 7 and the finals on February 9.
Lake George is a lock for the No. 1 seed. After that, it could get interesting.
Whitehall and Argyle are neck and neck for first place in Division II. Which ever team finishes second in that division will have a good shot at the "wildcard" spot. I've been told that spot goes to the team with the next best winning percentage, regardless of division.
But Granville is also in the hunt for the fourth playoff spot and have just as good a shot as any team to get it.
In Division III, Fort Ann is in position to capture another division title. And considering the Cardinals graduated four starting seniors last year, that is impressive.
