The first power ratings for high school volleyball teams from 1A to 6A were released this morning by the AIA and 4A in Southern Arizona is quite impressive with three teams ranked in the top 10, including Mica Mountain, which is in the second year of its existence.

The AIA does not recognize records in tournaments during the season, so Mica Mountain is listed at 5-0, although the promising new Thunderbolts are 8-2 in all of their matches this season.

Salpointe (7-0 as recognized by the AIA but actually is 12-2) is the second-ranked team in Class 4A behind Notre Dame Prep.

Canyon del Oro (11-0 as listed by AIA but is 11-2) is the No. 3 team. The Dorados host the Lancers on Monday in a much-anticipated 4A Kino matchup.
