    I see now that you can nominate teams for this poll. I did not know that or I would have nominated the Warren Girls. Not real sure how you could NOT nominate them yourself. They are 14-4 and just beat MP on Saturday. I have been scouting both teams for a couple weeks (for a team in the south) and Warren is a good team. Saturday was not that BIG of a surpise. MP played terribly, because Warren forced them to!

    Fred,
    Like you said, everyone is welcome to nominate a team of the week and it has been that way for years.

    Thanks,
    Tom
