1. Cardinal O’Hara girls basketball. Followed Thursday rout of Nardin with wins against Pennsyvlania schools Warren (10-3) and Cranberry Area (9-7, defending District 9 champion) at Erie, Pa., event.

2. Sacred Heart girls basketball. Also undefeated (12-0), also with impressive wins. Should have had them higher last week. Rise in rankings may have something to do with me bumping into Sister Maria Pares at the O’Hara-Nardin game. Sharks host Holy Angels at 6 p.m. Friday at Villa Maria.

3. St. Joe’s hockey. Seven straight wins. You’ve gotta see Gogos’ OT game-winner versus Canisius on PrepTalkTV.

4. Canisius boys swimming. Headed to Hathaway Brown School’s Blazer Invitational in Shaker Heights, Ohio, Saturday.

5. Clarence wrestling. No. 1 large school won ECIC Championships last week and host No. 3 Lancaster in rivals’ “Border Brawl” Friday.

7. Olean boys basketball. Huskies at Fredonia Friday. Hillbillies (9-3, 6-1) getting votes in small school poll. Olean won, 86-59, in December.

8. Canisius boys basketball. Very impressive second half in MLK Classic win over McKinley. Off until Jan. 29.

9. Falconer wrestling. Took over top spot in Wrestling Review of WNY’s small school poll with 35-29 win last week over Fredonia (three team points deducted for not calling The News with match).

10. Orchard Park boys swimming. Undefeated (10-0) after clinching at least a share of ECIC title as it handed defending champ Clarence its first loss.
