Rankings
We saw yet another great year in the Ozarks, with three area schools advancing to the Final Four and Winona and MV-BT/Liberty bringing home state championships.
Each week Ozarks Sports Zone will rank the top 10 teams in the area based on dominance by class.
We are back down to 13 for our final regular season poll of 2014. Keep in mind; the rankings are based on dominance by class, strength of schedule, and how hot a team is.
The second edition of the MHSVCA statewide volleyball rankings has eight schools ranked in the top 10 of their respective classes.
