06 Rankings – June 15

June 15, 2006

Big wins at the Woodstock Legends of Fastball tournament were enough to move the defending ISC II Champion Elmira, ON Cubs and 2006 host Bridgeport, ON PROforma Braves into a dead heat at the top of the ISC II Rankings. Elmira, a finalist at the Mitchell tournament, which featured several ranked teams, is recognized as #1 for the period with more #1 votes from the ranking committee.

Perkasie, PA Rise climb from #10 to #5 on the strength of their win at the highly touted Snapper Shoot-Out in Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON which featured 14 ranked teams.

Breaking into the top 10, up from #22, are the Glencoe, ON Astros based on their come-from-behind win over Elmira in Mitchell, as well as a semi-final appearance at the Snapper Shoot-Out.

The top 10 are as follows with their June 1 ranking in brackets:

1. (3) Elmira, ON Cubs
2. (4) Bridgeport, ON PROforma Braves
3. (2) Port Elgin, ON Blue Devils
4. (1) Niagara, ON Snappers
5. (10) Perkasie, PA Rise
6. (6) Oswego, NY Cutro Professional Services
7. (7) Ottawa, ON Team Easton Thunder
8. (5) Alvinston, ON Indians
9. (13) Tavistock, ON Smully’s Merchants
10. (22) Glencoe, ON Astros

A total of 32 teams received at least one vote from the panel of 11 judges. One set of rankings was not received by the deadline.

Niagara, Ottawa, Alvinston, Tavistock and Glencoe along with 26 other Ontario and Quebec teams will be in action this weekend as the Canada East area qualifiers kick off tonight in Innerkip and Fitzroy Harbour. The Rise will see action in the Mid-Atlantic Fastpitch Travel League this weekend.
