CLASS 6A

1. Lawrence (5-0) [Last week: 1]

2. Olathe North (5-0) [2]

3. Derby (3-1) [3]

4. Junction City (5-1) [4]

5. Shawnee Mission Northwest (3-1) [6]

6. Gardner-Edgerton (3-1) [5]

7. Wichita East (4-0) [9]

8. Blue Valley Northwest (3-1) [7]

9. Blue Valley (2-1) [8]

10. Blue Valley North (2-1) [10]

Notes: Wichita East will face Wichita Northwest this week for the City League title among the Wichita Public Schools. East has not won the City League since the mid-80s. Olathe East is 4-0 and just outside of the rankings. The Blue Valley schools have alternated wins and losses against each other. Lawrence held off Aquinas in a battle of No. 1 6A vs. No. 1 5A. Thus far, Lawrence has built Kansas' best resume, including a win against Bishop Carroll. This week, Lawrence has another huge test with Olathe North, and Derby travels to Maize.

CLASS 5A

1. Mill Valley (4-2) [2]

2. Wichita Northwest (4-0) [3]

3. Maize (6-0) [4]

4. St. Thomas Aquinas (4-1) [1]

5. Topeka Seaman (5-1) [5]

6. Bishop Carroll (3-2) [6]

7. De Soto (5-1) [7]

8. Goddard (5-1) [8]

9. Hays High (5-0) [9]

10. Andover (4-2) [NR]

Notes: Mill Valley dominated Olathe West as quarterback Cooper Marsh returned from injury. A lot of changes in 5A this week with Aquinas' loss – after its one-point win versus Shawnee Mission Northwest the week before. Maize barely held off Maize South and is the only 6-0 team in 5/6A. This week, Hays High, the WAC champions, gets Maize South at home in what should be its strongest test of the year. Kapaun, Maize South and Hutchinson are just outside of the rankings. A major storyline is the turnaround of 5A West teams. Hays High, Kapaun, Hutchinson, Goddard and Andover all had losing records last year.

CLASS 4A

1. Bishop Miege (2-2) [1]

2. Paola (6-0) [2]

3. Tonganoxie (5-1) [3]

4. Lansing (4-1) [4]

5. McPherson (5-1) [8]

6. St. James Academy (2-3) [5]

7. Andover Central (4-1) [7]

8. Fort Scott (4-0) [NR]

9. Buhler (3-2) [6]

10. K.C. Piper (3-3) [10]

Notes: McPherson moves back up after its solid win versus Buhler. Only three of the 16 teams in 4A West have winning records.

CLASS 3A

1. Andale (5-0) [1]

2. Topeka Hayden (5-1) [2]

3. Cheney (6-0) [3]

4. Perry-Lecompton (6-0) [4]

5. Southeast of Saline (5-0) [5]

6. Wichita Collegiate (6-0) [6]

7. Holton (5-1) [8]

8. Columbus (6-0) [9]

9. Riley County (4-1) [10]

10. Holcomb (5-1) [7]

Notes: Cheney defeated Holcomb, and Collegiate held off Clearwater, while Columbus defeated Galena. All six teams were undefeated entering last week. Andale and Southeast of Saline couldn’t play because of COVID-19 issues. This week, Hayden plays Perry-Lecompton in a massive matchup.

CLASS 2A

1. Rossville (6-0) [1]

2. Silver Lake (4-0) [3]

3. Hoisington (6-0) [2]

4. Hutchinson Trinity (6-0) [4]

5. Maur Hill (5-0) [5]

6. Nemaha Central (4-2) [6]

7. Garden Plain (5-1) [7]

8. Osage City (5-1) [10]

9. Hillsboro (4-2) [9]

10. Haven (4-2) [NR]

Notes: The key 2A game of Maur Hill and Nemaha Central never occurred as Maur Hill went into COVID-19 quarantine. Garden Plain won at Kingman, 14-10, in a thrilling district game when Kingman nearly scored late. Osage City won at Wellsville, 45-20, and has quietly delivered a massive offensive turnaround. OC is second in 2A scoring offense behind Rossville with only a 22-15 home loss to Lyndon in Week 1. The huge game this week in the annual War on 24 with Rossville and Silver Lake, both in the same district. An upset occurred when winless Wellsville beat undefeated Eureka, though Wellsville plays in a much tougher league. Thomas More Prep is 5-1 and has the first winning season in nine years. With another win, Haven will have its first winning record since ’01.

CLASS 1A

1. Centralia (5-1) [1]

2. Olpe (6-0) [2]

3. Smith Center (5-1) [3]

4. Conway Springs (5-1) [4]

5. Lyndon (5-1) [5]

6. Valley Heights (5-1) [6]

7. Inman (5-1) [7]

8. Sedgwick (6-0) [8]

9. Oakley (4-2) [10]

10. Jackson Heights (4-2) [9]

Notes: Smith Center had to pull away late to beat Oakley, and Olpe defeated Jackson Heights. Oakley is the only team to beat TMP. Centralia defeated 3A Beloit in a game scheduled late last week.

Eight-Man, Division I

1. Canton-Galva (6-0) [1]

2. Leoti-Wichita County (6-0) [2]

3. Madison (6-0) [3]

5. Little River (4-2) [5]

6. Argonia-Attica (6-0) [6]

7. Hoxie (4-1) [7]

8. South Gray (6-0) [8]

9. Sedan (6-0) [9]

10. La Crosse (3-2) [NR]

Notes: Clifton-Clyde played Twin Valley League rival Hanover and lost in a game scheduled last Friday – and played Friday night. The big upset came when Kiowa County knocked off No. 10 Pratt Skyline, an undefeated squad. Skyline and La Crosse will play for the district title this week. La Crosse is back in the rankings after three straight wins of 70-plus points and competitive losses to Victoria and Hoxie, teams a combined 10-1.

Eight-Man, Division II

1. St. Francis (6-0) [1]

2. Hanover (5-0) [2]

3. Victoria (6-0) [4]

4. Lebo (6-0) [4]

5. Colony-Crest (6-0) [6]

6. Frankfort (5-1) [5]

7. Axtell (4-2) [7]

8. Wheatland-Grinnell (5-1) [8]

9. Central Plains (3-1) [NR]

10. Wilson (4-2) [NR]

Notes: Victoria escaped with a home 50-34 victory against surprising Wilson. Victoria played without standing running back Jayvon Pruitt, though he might return this week. Wilson back Cooper Weinhold has 26 touchdowns. Victoria came back in the second half and returned a pair of fumbles for scores. Frankfort’s key game versus Hanover was cancelled because of COVID-19. Eight of the teams come from three districts. Frankfort, Hanover and Axtell are in District 3. Victoria, Central Plains and Wilson in District 5. St. Francis and Wheatland-Grinnell, which play this week for the district title, are in 8.

Six-Man

1. Cheylin (5-0) [1]

2. Ashland (3-0) [2]

3. Moscow (3-1) [3]

Notes: A significant number of recent cancellations of key games, though Cheylin beat Natoma, 52-12, on the road Friday. Cheylin led 20-12 late in the first half. The Cougars received 298 rushing yards from senior star back Colton McCarty and big play from its freshmen, Logan McCarty and Pablo Bermudez.
