DIVISION 1
1.  Detroit Catholic Central (1)
2.  Brighton (3)
3.  Macomb Dakota (4)
4.  Westland John Glenn (3)
5.  Davison (5)
6.  Hartland (6)
7.  Oxford (7)
8.  Clarkston (10)
9.  Hudsonville (8)
10.  Battle Creek Lakeview (9)
COMMENTS: With Brighton beating John Glenn, they locked up the 2 spot.  The real spot of debate here is the 3 and 4, with Dakota and Glenn having almost identical resumes.  When you look at wins over projected Team State qualifiers, Dakota has one more than Glenn so that's why we slotted them at 3.  Clarkston moves to 8 after beating WWT.

DIVISION 2
1.  Lowell (1)
2.  DeWitt (4)
3.  Warren Woods Tower (2)
4.  Gaylord (5)
5.  Eaton Rapids (3)
6.  Niles (10)
7.  St. Johns (6)
8.  Goodrich (8)
9.  Stevensville Lakeshore (7)
10.  New Boston Huron (9)
COMMENTS:  This is going to be an incredible task for the seeding committee to sort out when the time comes.  Why did Eaton Rapids fall?  Quite simply, it's the realistic move and it probably should have been done last week..  If they make it to Team State with WWT and Gaylord, they'd be seeded behind both.  If DeWitt beats ER at Regionals, they'd be seeded ahead of Gaylord, and potentially WWT as well.  Niles vs Lakeshore on Wednesday is essentially for the #6 ranking as Niles currently has the most quality wins of the 6-10 teams, but a head-to-head win would put Lakeshore over.

DIVISION 3
1.  Dundee (1)
2.  Richmond (2)
3.  Chippewa Hills (3)
4.  Whitehall (4)
5.  Birch Run (5)
6.  Algonac (7)
7.  Lakewood (10)
8.  Alma (6)
9.  Ida (9)
10.  Monroe Jefferson (NR)
COMMENTS: No movement in the top 5.  Alma falls after a loss to Lakewood over the weekend.  Monroe Jefferson slides in after being just outside the top ten for weeks and also due in part to Mt. Morris' losses this week.

DIVISION 4
1.  Hudson (1)
2.  Clinton (2) 
3.  Mendon (3)
4.  Manchester (4)
5.  Carson City (5)
6.  New Lothrop (6)
7.  Pine River (7)
8.  Springport (10)
9.  Addison (8)
10.  Hesperia (9)
COMMENTS: Springport jumps to number eight with the realization that they have common opponent wins with Addison.  Everything else stays as is.
