FOOTBALL POWER RANKINGS

District 3 will compile and release football power rankings following tonight’s games.  These power rankings are neither final nor official.  There are 3 games being played Saturday, Nov. 1, that will have an impact on the eventual final power rankings and pairings.  Those games are Lower Dauphin at Bishop McDevitt and Berks Catholic at Wyomissing among District 3 schools, plus Columbia-Montour Vo-Tech at Bangor Pius X among non-District 3 schools.

Tonight, District 3 will release two sets of rankings in each class.  Each class will take into account the potential results of Saturday’s games.  Rankings will be released showing the unofficial rankings with a McDevitt victory and a Lower Dauphin victory in Class AAAA and Class AAA as well as rankings showing a Berks Catholic win and a Wyomissing win in both Class AA and Class A.  However, the result of the Pius X-CMVT game will not be reflected in those releases.

District 3 will not release those rankings until all results, both in and out of District 3, have been confirmed and properly entered into the District 3 rankings software.  We will work as expeditiously as possible, but cannot guarantee a specific release time.

The links below will become active once all results have been entered.
