The Dogs didn't receive any more love from the CJHL ranking folks when it comes to the latest National Rankings. They are still an "honorable mention" which is nothing to sneeze at of course. However, I still hoped that three wins in three games since last weeks rankings might have bumped them into the top 20. No, the rankings don't really mean anything. But they are a nice recognition to the team for their efforts and a nice bragging point for the fans and the community.
The Vernon Vipers went up to #1 in the country, the Vees fell from 3rd to 5th, and Surrey fell from 9th to 11th. The Westside Warriors are now on the honorable mention list as well, with back to back wins over Penticton - the second a 7-3 thumping.
