There wasn’t any change in the top part of the HNIB News Connecticut Division 3 boys rankings this week, but that doesn’t mean every team came through the week unscathed.

Start at No. 1, where Hall-Southington retains its spot despite losing its only game of the week, but it came against Connecticut’s top-ranked Div. 2 squad, unbeaten WMRP. So the Warrior Knights hold their ground as they head into this week against Housatonic and E.O. Smith/Tolland.

No. 2 Newington did take care of business, sweeping the Enfield co-op and E.O. Smith/Tolland. The Indians look to this week with a tough test against New Milford as well as Shepaug.

No. 3 Sheehan swept past Trinity Catholic and Masuk. Next up for the Titans is unbeaten Daniel Hand, the No. 2-ranked Div. 2 team, followed by this week’s No. 4 team in Div. 3, New Milford. The Green Wave topped Newtown before tying Norwalk-McMahon.

Speaking of Norwalk-McMahon, this week’s No. 5 team jumped up two spots with that tie, as well as a win against Milford. NorMac faces Staples and Westhill-Stamford this week.

No. 6 Enfield-East Granby-Stafford came out of a busy week with the loss to Newington, followed by wins against Northeastern and Housatonic. The Eagles cross the Mass. border to face South Hadley, and also take on Milford.

Suffield-Granby-Windsor Locks bumps up a spot despite losing twice last week, but those came against Daniel Hand and Woodstock Academy, both ranked Div. 2 teams. The Wildcats did salvage the week with a win against Div. 2 Eastern Connecticut, and face Tri-Town in their only game this week.

Trinity Catholic enters the rankings at No. 8, going 2-1 by sandwiching wins against Northeastern and Milford around a loss to Sheehan. The Crusaders’ only game this week is against Wilton, which returns to the rankings at No. 9. The Warriors rolled over Fox Lane (N.Y.) in their only game last week, and also face Div. 1 Fairfield Warde/Ludlowe this week.

Once again, Housatonic-NW-Wamogo-Torrington rounds out the top 10. The Mountaineers beat Shepaug and lost to Enfield, and set their sights this week on top-ranked Hall-Southington in their only game.
