Class C Rankings: July 20

Posted on July 20, 2012 by CJ Siewert

It’s playoff time and that means the State tournament picture is becoming clearer by the day. Here is the July 20 edition of the Class C rankings.

These are the closest rankings this year, but the Lastrup Lakers remain at the top followed by a tie for second between the Blue Earth Pirates and Midway Snurdbirds.

A first place vote by each committee member receives 10 points, descending down to one point for the No. 10 team. Those points are then added up to compile the overall rankings.
