KAYLA WOLF, Journal Star

Comments: Creighton Prep retakes the top spot after an impressive run through the Metro Tournament last weekend. The Junior Jays edged Millard West in the title game, and they'll see Millard South on Tuesday. Grand Island moves up five spots after beating Southeast in Heartland Athletic Conference championship and ripping off a six-game win streak. The rest of the top 10 remains similar to last week, with each team taking at least one loss in their respective conference tournaments.

Key games this week: Tuesday—Millard South at Creighton Prep; Thursday—Omaha Burke at Creighton Prep; Thursday-Saturday—Papillion-La Vista Invite (Southeast, Pius X); Friday-Saturday—Lincoln East Tournament (Southwest, Millard South, Omaha Burke).

Class B (Record) | Pvs.

1. Omaha Roncalli (5-1) | 3

2. Norris (8-3) | 1

3. Concordia/BT/OCA (7-2) | 7

4. Hastings (9-3) | 2

5. Omaha Skutt (8-4) | 4

6. Platteview (7-2) | 8

7. Elkhorn (9-7) | -

8. Waverly (8-3) | 10

9. Wahoo/BN/LL (6-3) | 5

10. Bennington (6-3) | 9

Contenders: Crete, Gretna, Ralston.

Comments: Roncalli, which moves to the top, finally has some resume material after having nine of its first 11 games postponed or canceled. With wins over Wahoo/BN/LL, Archbishop Bergan and rival Omaha Skutt, the Crimson Pride look like one of Class B’s top teams despite only playing six games this season. Norris drops after losing in the Eastern Midlands Conference Tournament semifinals against Waverly. The Titans also lost 11-2 to Class A's Elkhorn South on Monday. Elkhorn returns to the top 10 after winning a thrilling title match against Waverly in the EMC Tournament. Class B hasn’t had any team step up and take charge yet, but as the season enters the homestretch, expect some statement wins ahead.

Key games this week: Tuesday—Omaha Roncalli at Ralston; Wednesday—Millard South at Elkhorn; Thursday—Elkhorn at Omaha Roncalli, Ralston at Bennington; Friday-Saturday—Lincoln East Tournament (Norris).
