A number of teams are ranked among the state’s best this week by the New York State Sportswriters Association. Full disclosure, I have absolutely nothing to do with the lists, and often struggle to make sense of the logic.
Arlington, Stepinac, Fordham Prep, Iona Prep, Mahopac, Mamaroneck, North Rockland are all included on the honorable mention list.
Yorktown is ranked No. 4, John Jay is No. 10, Rye is No. 14, and Byram Hills is No. 18. Brewster and Hackley are on the honorable mention list.
Bronxville is ranked ninth. Croton-Harmon, Hen Hud, Irvington, Kennedy Catholic and Pleasantville is on the honorable mention list along with … drum roll, please … Westlake. I know. I fell out of my chair, laughing, too.
