BOYS BASKETBALL RANKINGS
5A-6A: Not a lot has changed for the most part at the top, except Westlake is now at number 2 in the rankings after their win over Lake Travis who is now at 5. Will be interesting to see their trajectory now that football season is over and to see if Stony Point can stay at number 1 and if so for how long. And don't sleep on San Marcos, a team I am high on.
1A-4A: Not much has changed here, except moving Cole from 3 to 5. People may scratch their head at the 5 spot for Cole who is 7-10, but do us a favor and go look at their non-district schedule. This team is playing some 6A and 5A schools that will set them up come playoffs and beyond.
Private School: Central Catholic still stays at 1 and is looking great to start the season with Antonina Prep on their heels. Brentwood and St. Michael's are the 2 teams to watch in Austin as we head into 2023.
GIRLS BASKETBALL RANKINGS
5A-6A: Clark is the team to beat still though teams like Hays, Brennan and Harlan you should keep your eyes on as we move into 2023. I'll be watching the rematch between Brennan and Harlan later in the year.
1A-4A: Fredericksburg and Boerne are on a collision course for their January 13th district matchup. Oh and let's not forget Navarro. They lost to Fredericksburg last week and will be looking for some revenge later in the season.
Private School: Antonian Prep sits at the top with St. Mary's Hall on their tail.
5A-6A: Lots of movement from the preseason, and we decided to go Top 10 here. Stony Point has looked good so far this season with a win over #4 San Marcos, and even with 4 games under their belt we decided to put them in. Boerne Champion is looking great in the 5A level to start the year as well. 6A is going to be a slog this year and there are going to be so many good teams in contention in the Austin and San Antonio areas.
1A-4A: Nothing changes here. Some teams like Cole and Somerset have some losses but early in the season losses aren't always what they appear. Take Cole for instance. They have 4 losses but they are all to teams of higher classification.
Private School: Central Catholic takes over the top spot and has a game tonight against San Marcos that is going to tell us where both of these teams stand heading into 2023.
5A-6A: Steele and Cedar Park drop out after a slow start to the season and Pflugerville moves into the Top 3 after a great start to the season. Austin High will be a team to watch as the season progresses as well. And a 12-3 start for new school Sotomayor sees them enter the Top 10.
1A-4A: Fredericksburg and Boerne stay 1 and 2 with Fredericksburg looking really good. They are looking to get back to the Alamodome for the State tournament and they have the squad to do it. Also moving into the rankings is Geronimo Navarro who look great to start the season.
Private School: Antonian Prep stays in the top spot while Geneva moves to the 2 spot. Savio moves to 3 with their undefeated start.
