ALMANAC-8 Soccer Poll

Wednesday October 1, 2014

The Almanac-8 ranks the top eight teams in the Southwestern Indiana area. The poll is released twice a month during the soccer season.

Rank Team Record Comment
1 (#4AA) Memorial 12-1 After a top-state ranking (later taken by a loss to Carmel) and SIAC and city hardware, what's left for Memorial to prove?
2 (#16AA) Jasper 14-1 It would be exciting to see the Wildcats rematch their only loss against Memorial. Can the Big 8 champs keep it going headed into one of the toughest sectionals in the state?
3 (#5A) Gibson Southern 14-1 With another PAC title for the Titans, they can now focus on getting past a weaker Mater Dei and win the sectional.
4 North 8-4-1 A possible loss of focus for the Huskies (2-4 in the last six games), but with three of those defeats against ranked teams they'll be battle ready for the tournament.
5 (#16A) Washington Catholic 13-1-1 The Cardinals have got to feel good about heading into the post-season. One more victory over Blue Chip rivals North Knox and they can celebrate a fifth straight conference title.
6 Washington 9-6-1 After a drubbing from their conference rivals Jasper, the Hatchets have to improve to make it out of sectionals.
7 Castle 4-6-4 The Knights are crawling out of their hole, but rematching Jasper in the opening round of the tourney may end their chance of returning to regionals.
t8 Northeast Dubois 11-3-1 The Jeeps open against Wash. Catholic, so they'll have a chance to get revenge on their Blue Chip rivals.
t8 South Spencer 10-4 The Rebels are on a hot streak winning five in a row, and they're 2nd in the PAC. Their season finale against conference opponents Heritage Hills could likely preview a sectional showdown.

Also worth noting: Vincennes Rivet, Central, Heritage Hills
