Week 4’s Top 10 AP High School Football Polls has the WIVC taking over in Class 1A. Most of the remaining classes remain relatively unchanged as we head into mid-season.
Springfield High (3-0) overcame some suspended players to thump Decatur-Eisenhower 57-13 last week. The sizable victory saw the Senators leap one spot in Class 6A to #6. They take on SHG this week. Chatham-Glenwood’s (2-1) late touchdown put them past Jacksonville last week 35-28. They retained an honorable mention vote in the Class 6A poll this week.
Rochester’s (2-1) dramatic 45-41 win in the Leonard Bowl against SHG this past week finally puts them in the top slot of the Class 5A poll this week. They look to have a bit of an easier test this week when they take on Decatur-Eisenhower. Decatur-MacArthur (1-1) remains on the bubble as an honorable mention in 5A this week. They lost to Southeast 40-35 last week. They visit Chatham-Glenwood on Friday night.
Despite losing in the Leonard Bowl, SHG retained their #2 rank in Class 4A. They get an even tougher test this week when they take on Springfield High.
Class 2A remains unchanged from one week ago. Maroa-Forsyth (3-0) held on to #3 with an emphatic victory over New Berlin 64-7 last week. They take on Pittsfield this week. Rushville-Industry (3-0) held at #10 with a shutout on the road at Lewistown last Friday night 30-0. Rushville-Industry visits Havana to take on Midwest Central this week. Athens (2-1) remains outside the top 10 with honorable mention votes after a win against Pleasant Plains 41-7 last week. Athens visits their Menard County neighbors PORTA A/C this week.
Class 1A is 40% filled with WIVC teams. Brown County (3-0) pulled out a last quarter touchdown against Triopia, winning 14-9 last week. The win pushed them into a tie for #2 with Central A&M this week. Brown County visits Camp Point this week. Camp Point (3-0) remained undefeated in a win against Mendon-Unity last week 42-34. Camp Point moved up 1 spot to #6 in the poll this week. Carrollton (2-1) maintained their grip on #8 with a big win over Pleasant Hill on Friday 55-14. Carrollton heads to White Hall to play North Greene this week. West Central (3-0) is a new entry into the Top 10 this week, slipping in to #9 after shutting out Calhoun 40-0 last week. Greenfield-Northwestern (2-1) just remains a few votes outside the top 10 this week. They thumped North Greene 66-6 last week for their Homecoming game. They head to Hardin to play Calhoun this week.
