UTM Rawlings Power Rankings May 7

As of May 7...

U19 Tier 1
Waterloo Ghosts keep the #1 spot, earning a spot this past weekend in the Mohawk final, with a 4-0-1 record prior to the final being wiped out due to rain. The tie, was a game that simply was agreed to not be played between Waterloo and the Ontario Yankees, due to the 9PM scheduled game time. Windsor bumps up one spot to #2, we've had a chance to review this roster and they will proove to be a formidable opponent to anyone in Tier 1 this season. Brampton Blazers (M) qualified for the gold medal game at Mohawk, they now bump up to the #3 slot. Oakville Angels had a solid weekend, and now sit at #4. Rounding out the Top-5 are the Mississauga SW Hurricanes who impressed everyone this past weekend with an awesome tournament at Mohawk.

U19 Tier 2
Waterloo Ghosts are given the #1 spot again, based on what is believed to be a very talented roster. They open this weekend at the GVLSA opening weekend (Byron). Kitchener Klassics are up 2 spots, following their gold medal win at the Mohawk tournament. Kitchener ran the table at the event going a perfect 5-0-0. Ontario Yankees slide down 1-spot to now sit at #3. The Yankees played in the T1 division at Mohawk this past weekend. LaSalle Athletics drop down a spot to 4, based on the peformance of those above them. Cambridge rounds out the top-5, with a great weekend of their own at Mohawk. Cambridge was undefeated before running into the Kitchener squad in the final. Whitby Eagles enter the top-10 for the first time this season, based on a Bronze winning performance at Mohawk.

U16 Tier 1
Vaughan keeps the top spot at Bantam Tier 1. Vikings played in the U19 Tier 1 division at Mohawk, and placed 10th in pool play, but in doing so had a 2-2-0 record. They than qualified for the "B" final before it was rained out. So a solid 3-2-0 record up a bracket will keep their spot for now. Brantford Bobcats now sit at #2 following a good weekend in which they reached the final vs MSW only to have it rained out early in the game. Waterloo Ghosts lost to Brantford in the semi-final game, and will now hold down the #3 position. The biggest mover of the week is MSW Hurricanes 02 as they now are ranked #4, following a solid weekend of ball at Mohawk as well. Rounding out the Top-5 is UTM 2K2.  We also have Halton Hawks 03 squad up two spots, after some very good play this weekend. Halton now sits #8. All the big guns are in Brampton this weekend, it is too bad the event is going to see many teams missing players due to the Junior Women's National Combine.

U16 Tier 2
A new #1 team has been named this week, following the results at the Mohawk event. Oakville Angels 03 are now at the #1 spot. We have also moved the Fury Softball 03 program up and they now sit at #2 following their great performance this weekend at the same event. Also up several spots this week are the Vaughan Vikings. We have dropped the two LaSalle teams this week, more because of the performance of those ahead of  them, and the fact we have seen results from many, but no on the field play from the Athletics teams. Port Perry Angels are knocking on the door of the Top-10 now following a silver medal performance at the 1-day Stouffville Bantam event this past weekend.

U14 Novice

Still finding our way in the U14 category. Brampton keeps the #1 seed, they won Gold playing in a Bantam 2 event this weekend in Stouffville. We are still very high on the Kitchener Klassics Black team, and they will be making their debut this weekend in Brampton, following a series of exhibition games vs other talented teams over the weekend in Whitby. No real change in the Top-10 preferring to wait until mid-month before really narrowing down the Top10. We do have new entrants this week with Whitby Eagles coming in at #9 and Fury Softball coming in at #10.
