CLASS 6A

1. Lawrence (7-0) [Last week: 1]

2. Olathe North (6-1) [2]

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

4. Derby (4-2) [3]

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

6. Gardner-Edgerton (4-2) [8]

7. Blue Valley Northwest (4-1) [7]

8. Blue Valley (4-1) [8]

9. Olathe East (5-1) [10]

10. Wichita East (5-1) [9]

Notes: Shawnee Mission Northwest pulled off a highly impressive win against Bishop Miege, and Derby beat Maize South, 48-10, in the first-ever meeting between the schools.

CLASS 5A

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

2. Wichita Northwest (6-0) [2]

3. Bishop Carroll (5-2) [4]

4. Hutchinson (7-1) [NR]

5. Maize (7-1) [3]

6. St. Thomas Aquinas (4-3) [6]

7. Topeka Seaman (7-1) [5]

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

9. Kapaun-Mt. Carmel (6-1) [NR]

10. Andover (5-3) [NR]

Notes: A lot of changes in this week’s poll as Hutchinson defeated Maize in the final seconds to win ACVTL Division I. Kapaun earned a nice 24-6 win at Hays High, and Andover beat a quality Goddard team, 20-13, at home. Goddard was previously ranked eighth in 5A. Andover is also the only team to beat Hutchinson. Aquinas, 4-2 against Kansas schools, stays sixth mainly because of its explosive offense and running back Tank Young. Wichita Northwest remains the lone undefeated 5A team.

CLASS 4A

1. Paola (8-0) [1]

2. Tonganoxie (7-1) [2]

3. Bishop Miege (2-4) [3]

4. Andover Central (6-1) [6]

5. McPherson (7-1) [5]

6. St. James Academy (3-4) [4]

7. Fort Scott (6-0) [7]

8. Basehor-Linwood (5-3) [8]

9. Lansing (4-3) [9]

10. Rose Hill (5-3) [10)

Notes: Limited poll changes, but Rose Hill has won five in a row and is a contender for a deep playoff run in wide-open 4A West. McPherson and Andover Central lead the field, but RH has played 3A powers Clearwater and Wichita Collegiate close. Six-time Bishop Miege took another loss to 6A Shawnee Mission Northwest, though hasn’t lost to a 4A school in many years. Tonganoxie running back Tyler Bowden has cleared 2,000 rushing yards.

CLASS 3A

1. Andale (7-0) [1]

2. Topeka Hayden (6-1) [2]

3. Cheney (8-0) [3]

4. Perry-Lecompton (7-1) [4]

5. Southeast of Saline (7-0) [5]

6. Columbus (8-0) [6]

7. Holton (6-1) [7]

8. Riley County (6-1) [9]

9. Wichita Collegiate (7-1) [6]

10. Clearwater (6-2) [NR]

Notes: Andale earned a quality win by a big margin versus Wichita Collegiate, and Southeast of Saline also had a large victory versus Scott City. SES continues to rank as the No. 1 scoring defense in 3A. Class 3A is very deep and should be in line for excellent playoff rounds.

CLASS 2A

1. Rossville (8-0) [1]

2. Silver Lake (5-1) [3]

3. Hoisington (8-0) [2]

4. Maur Hill (7-0) [4]

5. Nemaha Central (5-2) [5]

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

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

8. Thomas More Prep-Marian (7-1) [NR]

9. Kingman (6-2) [NR]

10. St. Marys Colgan (5-2) [NR]

Notes: Unless Garden Plain gets through to state on 2A West, there’s undoubtedly going to be plenty of history made. Hoisington, Hutch Trinity, TMP, Kingman, Hillsboro (5-3) and Haven (6-2) have just two all-time state appearances between them, none since ’79. Maur Hill and Nemaha Central were in the same district but did not play each other because of a COVID-19 cancellation.

CLASS 1A

1. Centralia (7-1) [1]

2. Olpe (8-0) [2]

3. Smith Center (7-1) [3]

4. Conway Springs (7-1) [4]

5. Lyndon (6-2) [5]

6. Inman (6-2) [6]

7. Valley Heights (7-1) [8]

8. Sedgwick (7-1) [7]

9. Oakley (6-2) [9]

10. Jefferson County North (6-2) [NR]

Notes: Smith Center held off Inman, 29-22, and Conway Springs led 41-21 in the fourth quarter against Sedgwick before the Cardinals closed within a score. The top-4 teams have separated themselves in the classification.

Eight-Man, Division I

1. Canton-Galva (8-0) [1]

2. Leoti-Wichita County (8-0) [2]

3. Madison (8-0) [3]

4. Clifton-Clyde (6-1) [4]

5. Little River (6-2) [5]

6. Hoxie (6-1) [6]

7. Sedan (8-0) [8]

8. Argonia-Attica (7-1) [9]

9. Montezuma-South Gray (7-1) [7]

10. Pratt-Skyline (7-1) [10]

Notes: Wichita County defeated South Gray and is the lone team to beat SG and Hoxie. Canton-Galva and Clifton-Clyde are the lone ones to defeat Little River. C-C gave Argonia-Attica its only loss.

Eight-Man, Division II

1. St. Francis (7-0) [1]

2. Hanover (6-0) [2]

3. Victoria (8-0) [3]

4. Lebo (8-0) [4]

5. Colony-Crest (8-0) [5]

6. Frankfort (4-1) [6]

7. Axtell (6-2) [7]

8. Wheatland-Grinnell (6-2) [8]

9. Central Plains (5-1) [9]

10. Coldwater-South Central (6-2) [NR]

Notes: Limited changes in the poll. Two of the top-five teams did not play. Colony-Crest has its most victories since a 9-2 season in ’10. The last time Crest captured more than nine games was a 10-1 season in ’95. South Central, with four straight quarterfinal showings, has won six straight games and has its typical strong defense. The T-Wolves' typically strong defense has allowed just 118 points this year.

6-man

1.Bird City-Cheylin (8-0)

2. Moscow (6-1)

3. Rexford-Golden Plains (4-3)

Notes: Cheylin and Moscow will rematch in Saturday’s Wild West Bowl 6-man state championship game. Moscow won the contest last year, but Cheylin returned all but one player.
