I hope you all don’t have a case of The Mondays today, since, as per usual, our rankings take into account only games through Sunday. There were a lot of teams playing important games yesterday, and those results will figure into next week’s rankings.

There are some championships coming down the pike this weekend, and I think the most interesting one is the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA) large-school title match. The top seed is Charlottesville St. Anne’s Belfield (Va.), a team with a lot of skill and size, but this year has the motivation of trying to win the 2024 title after losing in the final a year ago. Last year’s champions, Chantilly Paul VI (Va.), is the sixth seed and will have to beat Alexandria Bishop Ireton (Va.) to get into the semifinals.
