    How is penn charter ahead of salesianum after losing to a team sallies beat?

    • Chris Goldberg says:

      The rankings are based on all games for the season. Penn Charter also has wins over nationally-ranked teams – one being St. Stephen’s, a team that Salesianum lost to. Strength of schedule is also a factor.
