After games on Sunday, March 18

The Class 1, 2 and 3 tournaments were decided over the weekend and with Charleston hanging on to dethrone defending Class 3 champ Hogan Prep, the Bluejays stood pat in the rankings, along with everyone else. In Class 2, Billings won while Scott County Central pushed their streak to four straight Class 1 state titles.

On the national front, a few upsets allowed two-time defending Class 5 champion McCluer North to move up to No. 33 in the POWERADE FAB 50 rankings.

Here are the final rankings (last week's rankings in parentheses):

1. McCluer North (Florissant) 28-1 (1)

Stars ended season on 26-game win streak and repeated as Class 5 champs by beating Nixa.

2. Vianney (Kirkwood) 27-2 (2)

Golden Griffins had their best season ever but fell short of a title after a Class 5 quarterfinal loss to eventual champ McCluer North.

3. Nixa 30-2 (3)

Thirty-game win streak was snapped in the Class 5 final by McCluer North. With Jalen Norman and Austin Ruder, back, Eagles are the early favorites for next year.
