Fourteen of the 16 teams in this week’s rankings made the state playoffs. Instead of writing about each team, The Public League will instead publish a piece analyzing the first-round matchups. It should be up on Sunday morning. It will look at the superlatives for teams in the Public League: best draw, best first-round match-up, longest distance to travel, toughest draw, etc.

Last week: won 54-6 against Robeson.

2. Curie (8-1) 2
