ELK COUNTY CATHOLIC BOYS CLAIM FINAL NO. 1 SPOT IN D9SPORTS.COM DISTRICT 9 RANKINGS; PUNXSUTAWNEY GIRLS GO WIRE-TO-WIRE AS NO. 1

The Elk County Catholic boys� basketball team moved up one spot to No. 1 in the final District 9 basketball rankings presented by D9Sports.com for the 2004-2005 season.

On the girls� side, the Punxsutawney girls completed a wire-to-wire run as No. 1 holding the top spot in all six polls this season.

The rankings are for games played through Feb. 4.

This is the last week for the polls, because District 9 is due to release the 2004-2005 playoff brackets early next week.

The rankings are broken down into an overall category and classification categories � Class AAAA/AAA, Class AA and Class AA � for both boys� and girls� basketball.

Listed are team, record and last week�s ranking in parenthesis. NR-denotes not ranked. Please feel free to use the rankings in any way you see fit. All we ask is that you credit D9Sports.Com for them.

Rankings will be released at the conclusion of every Friday night until the playoffs brackets are announced.

This is the fifth year D9Sports.Com has done high school basketball rankings. They are an offshoot of the rankings Rich Rhoades did while he was Sports Editor at the DuBois Courier Express. They are the only District 9 basketball rankings that are done at this time.
