CLASS 6A

1. Lawrence (6-0) [Last week: 1]

2. Olathe North (5-1) [2]

3. Derby (3-2) [3]

4. Junction City (6-1) [4]

5. Shawnee Mission Northwest (4-1) [5]

6. Blue Valley (3-1) [9]

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

8. Gardner-Edgerton (3-2) [6]

9. Wichita East (4-1) [9]

10. Olathe East (4-1) [NR]

Notes: No question that there are definite tiers in 6A. Lawrence defeated Olathe North by one point in a key Sunflower League contest and is the only undefeated team in 6A. Lawrence, Mill Valley, Wichita Northwest, Olathe North and Maize are the best teams in Kansas at this point. Derby lost by one point to Maize. Junction City’s only defeat was a one-point loss to Bishop Carroll in Week 1. SMNW’s lone loss is a one-point defeat to Aquinas. The top-5 have separated themselves from the rest of the classification after seven weeks.

CLASS 5A

1. Mill Valley (5-2) [1]

2. Wichita Northwest (5-0) [2]

3. Maize (7-0) [3]

4. Bishop Carroll (4-2) [6]

5. Topeka Seaman (6-1) [5]

6. St. Thomas Aquinas (4-2) [4]

7. De Soto (6-1) [7]

8. Goddard (6-1) [8]

9. Maize South (4-2) [NR]

10. Hays High (5-1) [9]

Notes: Bishop Carroll defeated Bishop Miege and faces St. Thomas Aquinas this week. Maize South defeated severely short-handed Hays High, 21-20. Maize earned its big win versus Derby, and Wichita Northwest beat Wichita East to capture the City League. Maize is the only 7-0 team left in 5/6A.

2. Bishop Miege (2-3) [1]

3. Tonganoxie (6-1) [3]

9. Lansing (4-2) [4]

10. Rose Hill (4-3) [NR]

Notes: Paola moves ahead of six-time defending champion Bishop Miege for the top spot in 4A. Tonganoxie lost by seven earlier this year against Paola without quarterback Blake Poje, though Poje has now returned. Tongie was very dominant against 6A Shawnee Mission East. Basehor-Linwood upset Lansing. Rose Hill has won four in a row after a Week 3 overtime loss to Wichita Collegiate, currently a 7-0 squad.

6. Garden Plain (6-1) [7]

7. Hutchinson Trinity (6-1) [4]

8. Hillsboro (5-2) [9]

9. Haven (5-2) [10]

10. Kingman (5-2) [NR]

Notes: Plenty of shakeup in this week’s poll. Rossville beats War on 24 rival Silver Lake. Haven upsets Hutchinson Trinity and clinches its first winning record since ’01. Hillsboro, which has defeated Haven, will play Hutchinson Trinity for the district title this week. Kingman only has losses to Cheney and Garden Plain, teams a combined 13-1. Maur Hill and Nemaha Central will not play each other after its Week 6 game was cancelled. TMP has won six in a row and its just outside the rankings at 6-1.

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

9. Oakley (5-2) [9]
