1. Cardinal O’Hara girls basketball. Tuesday’s historic victory over Sacred Heart gives us a clear No. 1 on this list. Fun-to-watch Hawks (fun to watch on PrepTalkTV Weekly on as well) are undefeated with impressive wins outside the area.

2. St. Joe’s hockey. Marauders still marauding. Twelve straight wins including a 5-1 win over Section V power McQuaid.

3. Canisius boys swimming. Followed rout of St. Joe’s with excellent win over Cathedral Prep (Pa.). All-Catholic meet Monday at ECC should be a Crusader showcase.

4. Canisius boys basketball. Great start to the month. Win at Timon, win over Section V power Fairport, ascend to No. 1 spot in both the state Class A poll and The News large school poll.

5. Clarence wrestling. Season-long No. 1 large school is seventh in state AA poll. Sunday’s Section VI championships at UB might end up a Red Devil-fest like the ECICs and Class AA tourney.

6. Olean boys basketball. No. 1 small school, which beat AA school East of Rochester last week, looks like a state-championship caliber squad. The state poll thinks so, too: The Huskies are ranked first in Class B.

7. Sacred Heart girls basketball. An oh-so-close loss to O’Hara. Stay tuned: The No. 1 large school Sharks will likely have another shot at the Hawks.

8. Nichols girls hockey. Nine straight wins as they head off to face more elite competition at Shattuck-St. Mary’s Jamboree this weekend.

9. Falconer wrestling. No. 1 small school dominated Class D tournament with four individual champions as they head to UB on Sunday.

10. City Honors swimming. Set four records in winning All-High title, with freshman Alize Allen – not surprisingly given her record-breaking season – in on three of them.
