VALLEY POWER RANKINGS (Dec. 17 update)
Round Two for the rankings was impacted greatly by the SunDome Mat Classic, obviously, because 15 local teams were there and offered a great baseline to judge. Selah, Grandview and Kittitas weren’t there so I blended them in where it made sense. With Cienfuegos and Salcedo out, Granger moved its lineup around a bit but I stuck with their weights from the SunDome for this set of rankings. Round Three should come shortly after the break. Until then, Happy Holidays!!!
