National rankings aren't just for football, of course.
In soccer, Clarence is among the teams receiving other votes in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll. The Red Devils are listed 17th among 18 teams getting other votes.
Clarence is also ranked sixth in Region II, which consists only of New York teams.
The Williamsville East girls are ranked 12th in Region II. Rochester's Aquinas is ranked seventh in the region; that makes me wonder where Nichols is since the Vikings split two games with Aquinas, including handing the Little Irish their only loss.
Already upon us in Section VI soccer is Selection Saturday -- the seedings and schedule for the boys and girls sectional soccer tournaments are announced Saturday. We'll have the seedings online as soon as we're able to on Saturday and they'll be in Sunday's paper.
