Hudson Valley/Westchester: Top 10 Rankings
 
1. New Rochelle (5-0): The Huguenots passed their first, and likely only, test of the regular season on Saturday, beating White Plains. They made so many mistakes in the 23-12. Imagine how good they’d be if they cut those down.
 
2. Monroe-Woodbury (6-0): There was consideration about putting Monroe, the state’s top-ranked team, in the No. 1 spot in our poll, too. But New Rochelle won last year’s meeting and is just as good it was then. The Crusaders will surely get their chance.
 
3. Stepinac (5-0): Once again, the Crusaders took care of business against their AA Division opponent. Is it too late to petition the league and allow Stepinac to play in the AAA Division playoffs?
 
4. Harrison (5-0): The Huskies survived a major scare on Saturday against Spring Valley, once again proving how fragile things can be week-to-week in Class A. Harrison is better than it proved last week. And it will savor the chance to prove it against Rye on Saturday.
 
5. Iona Prep (4-1): The Gaels have won four straight since losing on opening day and continue to get better every day. Once a pipe dream, Iona could seriously contend for a spot in the AAA Division title game.
 
6. White Plains (4-1): Tough call on where to put the Tigers after they lost to New Rochelle on Saturday. They struggled moving the ball for most of the day. But you can’t discount the loss of Terrelle Eaton and Khadrey Merot in the backfield.
 
7. Mahopac (5-0): The Indians, once again, were on the verge of losing before pulling it out in the end. An incredible comeback effort for Mahopac. But, like I’ve said all season, you can’t live on the edge all the time and not expect to eventually fall off just once.
 
8. Wallkill (6-0): With no true third contender in Section 9 Class A, Wallkill is simply biding its time until its inevitable rematch with Cornwall in the title game. Wallkill’s confidence continues to grow until then.
 
9. Clarkstown North (4-1): Solid all-around effort for North in Friday’s win, securing a league championship that annually goes to North Rockland. The Rams can really build momentum for the Class AA playoffs in Friday’s season-finale with Clarkstown South.
 
10. Yorktown (4-1): The Huskers locked up a league championship and a Class AA playoff berth with Friday’s win and shouldn’t have much trouble in Saturday’s finale with Mamaroneck. This will be one team to watch in seeding because they can match up with anyone.
 
On the brink: Roosevelt (4-1); Poughkeepsie (5-0); Nyack (4-1); Horace Greeley (4-1); Rye (4-1); Minisink Valley (3-2); Bronxville (5-0); Scarsdale (4-1); Arlington (3-2); John Jay-EF (3-2); FDR-Hyde Park (5-1).
