Inside the 7th Region (12/12/16)

By PurplePride92 - The beginning of the season hasn't brought much change to the 7th Region rankings but things are definitely different at this time.

St. Xavier and Central haven't gotten off to the starts they want but we haven't even gotten to Christmas yet so this is not the time to panic. Ballard has gotten off to a strong start...
