The top half of this edition of the POWERADE state rankings remains unchanged from last week, but there has been significant turnover in the bottom half.
The most shocking is probably the absence of East Longmeadow, which spent a good portion of the season ranked No. 1. But the Spartans have hit a rough stretch over the past couple weeks, and a loss to West Springfield was enough to drop them out of the Top 10 for the first time all season.
New teams this week are No. 6 Lowell, No. 9 Milford and No. 10 Chelmsford.
