WISCA Rankings Settle As Arrowhead, Edgewood Stay On Top

The first week of October sees no change atop the Wisconsin Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association rankings, with Hartland Arrowhead continuing to lead the big schools and Madison Edgewood the small.

The defending state champs in Division 1, Hartland Arrowhead dominated the Brookfield Central Lancer Invite to remain atop the standings – Arrowhead has been ranked #1 for four straight weeks.

In another success for the team, star senior Megan Doty verbally committed to the University of Wisconsin last week. Doty did not compete at the Lancer Invite, but fellow seniors Kelly Jacob and Rocky Laabs won the 100 free and 500 free back-to-back to help Arrowhead triumph.

Division 1 Rankings

1 » Arrowhead 653 pts
2 » Middleton 525 pts
3 » Verona Area-Mount Horeb 448 pts

Arguably the two best teams in Division 2 (for the state’s smaller schools) clashed in a dual meet, and though McFarland beat Madison Edgewood, Edgewood remained #1 in the rankings for a second-straight week.

The meet was back-and-forth the whole way, but Sara Hagen led a 1-2-3 finish in the 100 breast late to give McFarland the win. McFarland, who opened the season at #1 in the rankings, sits at #4 this week, with Edgewood still on top.

The WISCA (Wisconsin Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association) rankings are based entirely off of the state’s database of top times. The top 30 times in each event earn points for their team, #1 earning 30, #2 29, #3 28 and so on down to #30 earning 1. Relay rankings are worth double points.
