With Curie being upset at the hands of Marist last week, Simeon's path to another Class 4A state championship may have gotten a little easier. Curie played the Wolverines tough earlier in the season, so removing that potential roadblock can only help -- not that Simeon needs the help. At 28-1 and with no in-state losses, the Wolverines are still locked in at No. 1 in this week's POWERADE state rankings.
