2015 Suburbs Men’s Adult – Week 2 (July 1)

By
Updated: July 2, 2015

Just like that we’re into July (even if the weather tells us otherwise) and are two weeks into the Regular Season!  Week 3 will also be Hoops and then Bowling is set for Week 4.  Before we dive into the Power Rankings, click here for the Weekly Highlight Video! OK Let’s Rank ’em!

Power Rankings

1. Team The Alley in Highwood – Currently tied for 1st with 35 points.

This season has created a strong of deja vu for the other Teams in the League.. The Alley have once again started out hot and look like they have only gotten stronger in the months since they won their second straight Championship.  We’ve seen the new pieces now fit in nicely in both softball and hoops.. Both are Playoff sports and it seems like Captain Trevor pushed all the right buttons when making transactions in the pre-season.  They are on the hunt for a 3peat.  Not sure if anyone will be able to stop them… Next week the only other Undefeated Team will try to knock them from their perch and that is the #2 squad…

2. Team Cy Fredrics – Currently tied for 1st with 35 points.

If you are looking for the most likely candidates to ascend to the mountain top and, thus, knocking Team The Alley off it.. Look no further than Team Cy Fredrics.  They’ve been fantastic so far in 2015 and  it seems that anything other than a League Championship will be a disappointment.  They are one of two Undefeateds left, the second of course being the Alley and they will get their chance to grab hold of the #1 spot in both the Power Rankings and Standings next week when they meet #1 in Hoops.  More importantly, they’ve been waiting about 11 months to avenge their Playoff L from a year ago.. Retribution may be just around the corner…

3. Team BBQ Pit – Currently in 4th with 15 points.

Picked up their first W of the Season on Wednesday Night against Team The Karyn Collection. Historically, Team BBQ Pit excels in softball and struggles a bit in Hoops.. Well, it’s a new year and a new Team.. That script has totally flipped and it likely can be chalked up to the fresh legs they’ve added in the off-season.  This squad has what it takes to beat the top Teams in Hoops and it’ll be interesting to see how match-ups and seeding fall come August.

Rest of the Pack (Alphabetical Order) 

Team Dr. Jacob D.D.S. – Currently in 3rd with 20 points.

They didn’t come away with another W this week but if you told them through two weeks they’ve be alone in 3rd place of the Standings, they’d have to be pumped.  Falling to the Alley in anything is not something to get down about.. These guys are still right where they need to be and will look to climb back into the Rankings next week when they take on #3 Team BBQ Pit.

Team SLA Insurance – Currently tied for 5th with 0 points.

Team The Karyn Collection – Currently tied for 5th with 0 points.

Still searching for their first W in 2015.. The start has a similar feel to 2014.. All is good with them though as they turned a slow start last season into their 3rd straight Championship Game appearance.  It would be unwise of everyone to count them out and surely no one is.. They are just shedding some rust and they know when it’s time to really flip the switch.. Next week, you can be sure they will fare much better in Hoops.

 

That’s it for us. Have a great holiday weekend! See you next Wednesday Night.
