Macon and Battle Drop Out of Football Rankings

The biggest change in the high school football rankings this week came in Class 6, as the top two teams both lost to other teams in the top five. Former top-ranked Ray-Pec dropped to fourth after losing to new Number Two Liberty North, while CBC takes over the top spot after beating former Number Two DeSmet. Joplin, Ray-Pec and DeSmet round out the top five.

Locally, Westran dropped from seventh to tenth in Class 1 after losing to 5th ranked Marionville. Monroe City is still Number Two, and Harrisburg moved up two spots to 8th. Marceline and Mark Twain picked up votes. In Class 2, Hallsville climbed one spot to third. Macon dropped out of the top ten. Bowling Green and Palmyra are getting votes. In Class 3, Blair Oaks is still on top, and Mexico is still 8th. Hannibal remains 4th in Class 4. Battle dropped out of the top ten in Class 5, but is still getting votes, after losing to Helias. The Crusaders crack the list at Number Ten.
