Nov. 15, 2022 — Top 10 for the week of Nov. 13

There are just 16 championships left to be contested in 2022: four each in Massachusetts and Pennsylvania, three in Connecticut, two in Delaware, and the three New England prep school brackets. This week’s competition has a lot to go in order to match the drama of Saturday (just look back three days on this blog), but a lot of the best teams will be completing their seasons — and for some, their careers.

Our honorary RightToRightIsRight.com No. 11 Team of the Week is the winner of the Division 2 bracket of the CIF San Diego Section.
