The Taconic boys soccer team celebrates a goal during a 6-3 home win over Westfield Tech.

There are few better places to be than atop the MIAA power rankings in one’s respective sport. That is where the Taconic boys soccer team sits.

The Thunder, who knocked off Westfield Tech Thursday afternoon, handing Westfield its first regular-season loss since 2020, is the No. 1 team in Division V as the MIAA released its first series of power rankings.
