    I’m still going with Bingham. Sometimes Pierce, its not good to hit your peak mid-season. And, I wouldn’t call it a solid win against Bingham. It was one point with three impact players out for the game.

    I think the DII looks about right. I don’t necessarily agree with the DI rankings. I think that records matter, but looking at who actually can contend for state is another thing. Here are my rankings:

    1. Park City: After a solid performance against Bingham #1 is clearly theirs. They do need more creativity though on offense.
    2. Bingham: Great team still, looking to connect the dots on offense. Not even close to their peak.
    3. Alta: This is a gut choice. They look to be making progress and it wouldn’t surprise me if the beat Park City.
    4. Skyline: Still solid and still a contender. Look for them to potentially run the table.
    5. Riverton: I think they are better coached than Olympus and Sharkbait will help them down the road.
    6. Juan Diego: They have been plagued with injuries but should make a turn come playoffs.
    7. Jordan: I believe they will hold their own against PC and run over Copper Hills.
    8. Olympus: They have already played their best lacrosse this season. I don’t see them getting out of the first round.
