State Rankings--4A
« on: September 21, 2017, 03:14:51 pm »
Taking a cue from RTF, I'll share the 4A rankings.

1. Fountain Lake 15-0 (the loss shown was in a benefit game to Benton, I don't count that)
2. Brookland 10-2
3. Booneville 11-3
4. Jonesboro Westside 10-4
5. Baptist Prep 13-5
6. Southside Batesville 12-2
7. CAC 10-3
8. Ashdown 11-4-1
9. Shiloh Christian 8-7
10. Berryville 5-2

A few things I know, mainly from our conference (4A West):

Fountain Lake, not counting the benefit match, has only lost three sets (one each to Bryant, Ashdown and Lake Hamilton). Booneville gave them a very close match at the Mena tournament.  Those two may see each other at the Ft Lake tournament a week from Saturday.

Booneville's losses are to Fountain Lake, Mena and Paris.  They have also beaten Mena.  They should be favored in every regular season match remaining except for Paris but don't count them completely out of that one.  They are also in the Ft Lake and Paris tournament.  (Edit:  I have found out the LadyCats will not be in the Paris tournament)

Ashdown has really improved.  They will not be a pushover at all.  They have an excellent outside hitter.

Shiloh has played a brutal non-conference schedule as per usual for them (Greenwood twice, Conway, Bentonville and Bentonville West).  They have won every conference match 3-0.  That said, that is an awfully weak combined conference.

Updated to 9/25:

1. Fountain Lake 18-0
2. Brookland 12-4
3. Baptist Prep 15-5
4. Booneville 14-3
5. Southside Batesville 13-2
6. CAC 11-3
7. Jonesboro Westside 11-5
8. Shiloh 9-7
9. Ashdown 12-4-1
10. Lonoke 9-4-1

FL with an impressive 3-0 win over Lakeside tonight.

Baptist Prep has won 10 in a row, losing only one set in that run. They do have a win over CAC. But why are they ranked above Southside and Lonoke who have all beaten them? 

Booneville will get a test from Mena on Thursday night.

Test passed.  Booneville won 3-0 over Mena.

The LadyCats are in a tournament at Lakeside this weekend which also has Fountain Lake and Lonoke in it.

Fountain Lake proves themselves again.  They win the Tri-Lakes tournament. 

Booneville and Lonoke very impressive there as well.  Those last two had a fantastic semifinal match with Booneville just coming out on top (26-24 23-25 16-14).  Lonoke split with Fountain Lake in pool.

Update:

1. Fountain Lake
2. Brookland
3. Baptist Prep
4. Booneville
5. Jonesboro Westside
6. Shiloh Christian
7. Southside Batesville
8. Berryville
9. Lonoke
10. CAC

Fountain Lake finally was hit with a loss that counts, against Greene County Tech at the Paris tournament. 

How Baptist Prep is as high as they are still mystifies me.  The win against CAC still helps.  But while they swept Mayflower all three games were close, and Mayflower lost to Paris's JV at the Paris tournament and did not impress me at all.

Booneville has a chance to improve their stock greatly if they can beat Paris tomorrow night at Paris.

West tournament is next week at Fountain Lake.  Divided into North/South sections. 3 schools in North, 5 in South, so 1S plays 5S.

First round Monday looks like this.

1N Booneville vs 4S Malvern

2S Ashdown vs 3N Waldron

1S Fountain Lake vs 5S Bauxite

2N Mena vs 3S Arkadelphia

I'm guessing all the 1s/2s will advance. Arkadelphia may have the best chance for a lower ranked team to win if Mena is off.

Shiloh is far and away the best out of this conference, IMO.  Berryville sits a clear 2.  And then there is a large gap between 2 and 3/4.

Oh, wow.  The West got turned on its head as Mena upsets Fountain Lake. 

It will be Booneville and Mena in the finals on Thursday.

And, as a reward, Shiloh gets to play a #4 Southside on Southside's home turf.  That won't be easy.

A #1 or #2 Brookland or Westside out of the NE won't have a picnic with a #3 or #4 Fountain Lake, either.

4A seems to me to be as even as I've seen it, maybe ever.  I think 7 or 8 teams have a legitimate chance to win it all.  Just a matter of who gets hot at the right time.

4A West:

1. Mena
2. Booneville
3. Fountain Lake
4. Ashdown

Mena is one of those teams that is getting hot.  They have moved up a freshman that is making a big impact.  They played an outstanding match last night and deserved to win.

Anyone at the 4A tournament, I'll be very interested to see how the NE Ark teams do.

Baptist Prep over Booneville 3-1
Fountain Lake over SS Batesville don't know score
Shiloh over Brookland, I think 3-1
CAC over Mena 3-0

All the Northeast teams are done.  That's surreal. 

Our season is done too, at 27-7, our best record ever.  Proud of our LadyCats!

From what I've seen/heard, I'm predicting a Fountain Lake/Shiloh final.  If so that would be a virtual home game for the Lady Cobras.

It's an all-private school final, with Baptist Prep facing Shiloh.

Kudos to Fountain Lake for being the last public school survivor.  And they gave BP a terrific fight.

So can we just focus on the games and not worry about the Public vs Private school debate?  ::)
Best of luck to Baptist Prep and Shiloh.

Point well taken.  Two deserving teams.  As any of the quarterfinalists would have been.  Those were eight really good teams.

Apparent since mid season that 4A was wide open and it would be the two teams who got hot late that would be in the finals, and those two did.

No dog in the hunt so may the best team win.

My final rankings.  This has nothing to do with Maxpreps rankings.  This is just from what I saw and heard about over the course of the season.  The top 8 represent the quarterfinalists.  The next two are the two best (IMO) that did not get out of the first round.

1. Shiloh
2. Baptist Prep
3. Fountain Lake
4. CAC
5. Brookland
6. Booneville
7. Southside Batesville
8. Mena
9. Lonoke
10. Berryville
