It's not very often that we get a match between the top team in Class AA and Class A, but it happened last week.

O'Gorman (Class AA) defeated Sioux Falls Christian (Class A) 3-0 on Friday night to improve to 18-0 on the season. The Knights are ranked 12th in the nation in the latest AVCA/USA Today Super 25 rankings and have claimed top status as the best team in the state following wins over Class A #1 Sioux Falls Christian and Class B #1 Northwestern (2-0 win, September 26).

Sioux Falls Christian fell to 22-1 with the loss to O'Gorman, but the Chargers will look to close out an undefeated year against Class A opponents on Monday night (October 26) when they battle Lennox.

One change took place in the Class B poll for the week. Colman-Egan and Faulkton Area are both tied for fifth. Colman-Egan, 19-3, had a strong week defeating Lennox, Deubrook Area, and Gayville-Volin to move them into the top-five conversation.
