Columbia Basin & Clark continue to top latest Joward Power Rankings - Feb 11
If Clark doesn't end this year in the top spot, I'll eat my hat. At 18-1 and having won their last 16 in a row, they look positively unbeatable. The difficult one to call, and that's putting it rather lightly, I must say, is the Southern Region. Five teams are tied at 6-3 for the top spot in the South. Mt. Hood and Clackamas have the most momentum right now, but the five includes two of the top scoring teams in the league in SW Oregon and Chemeketa. The two teams combined for 225 points when they met on Jan. 18, and we'll have another look when they square off once again on Feb. 15. Clackamas and The Hood will also have another match up before the season is over, but at this point, the Southern Region could go any one of five different directions.
Men's Joward Power Rankings
The Columbia Basin Hawks are back to their usual business of winning Eastern Region titles, and have now picked up wins in their last 14 (count 'em) contests, and without a solid challenger so far, it looks like the power-region is theirs for the taking. And if I had to choose a fellow contender to play CBC in the final, I'd have to choose Umpqua: winners of their last eight, and currently leading the ever-tough Southern Region.
