The season is young. There is a lot to be determined.
But if there’s one thing we’ve learned early, it’s that Galena is for real. Dillon Voyles may be the MVP of the season’s first month and Moses Wood has proved more than capable when attention shifts to Voyles.
1. Galena Grizzlies (8-1, 2-0)
Maxpreps.com has Galena ranked the No. 1 team in the state.
Those are computer rankings and many notable teams are missing altogether (i.e. Bishop Gorman), but it’s a testament to what the Grizzlies have accomplished early this season.

2. Spanish Springs Cougars (5-2, 2-0)
Yes, Carson was shorthanded. It was not the same Senator team. But Tuesday’s 66-41 win in the state’s capital was impressive.
Spanish Springs followed the big win up two non-league home wins over Grants Pass (Grants Pass, Ore.) and Oakland (Oakland, Calif.). The Cougs host Douglas and Thursday then play one of the biggest games of the season, Friday, at home against Galena.
Last week: 3
3. Bishop Manogue Miners (4-3, 1-0)
The Miners have lost three of their last four. Two of those losses, however, have come against a gifted Folsom team.
Last week: 2
4. Reno Huskies (8-2, 1-0)
Reno lost a massive senior class last year and yet here are the Huskies, winners in eight of their first 10.
The schedule hasn’t been particularly daunting, but they can only beat the teams on their schedule.
Last week: NR
5. Carson Senators (0-4, 0-1)
A brutally difficult schedule to the start the season is the largest reason for Carson’s slow start.
Missing a pair of starters in last Tuesday’s loss home loss to Spanish Springs didn’t help, either.
Last week: 4
