BOYS STATE RANKINGS BY DIVISION & REGION

Artesia of Lakewood has been No. 1 in Division III before, but that was in the days of all-star players moving into the district amid suspicions. The Pioneers are now back in that spot with more home-grown talent. Still No. 1 in Div. I is Westchester with Mater Dei on top in Div. II, Horizon in Div. IV and Price in Div. V.
