Note: Highest final national ranking is listed following year, with ties broken by choosing the team Ballislife.com editors determined to be strongest. Some states have never had a team nationally ranked. Several states have never had teams earn even a final top 20 regional ranking, but perhaps your team will change that during the 2016-17 season.
