The state tournament wreaked havoc on this week's edition of the POWERADE state rankings, with five of last week's top 10 squads seeing their seasons come to an end.
There is stability at the top, however, as St. Mark's remains at No. 1 after winning the NEPSAC AA title two weeks ago. Springfield Central is the top MIAA team, checking in at No. 2. Central will take on No. 5 St. John's (Shrewsbury) in the Division 1 semifinals, with the winner of that game advancing to face No. 4 Brockton in the state title contest.
