There are a few programs across the country that have distinguished themselves as first-rate across the board -- with nationally ranked boys and girls. Three of them have boys and girls squads ranked in the top 15 nationally -- Fort Collins CO, Fayetteville-Manlius NY and Southlake Carroll TX.
Southlake Carroll stepped up big at the Chile Pepper Invitational in Arkansas last weekend. The boys bumped up to No. 2 in the nation (from 3) and the girls rose seven spots to No. 15.
The competition is getting fierce for rankings recognition as the season begins to move toward state championships from coast to coast. Here are the Week 6 Powerade FAB50 boys team rankings and girls team rankings.
