Video Platform Video Management Video Solutions Video Player

Nixa returns to the top spot in Class 5 after a one-week hiatus. In Class 4, Republic stays at No. 2 despite its double-overtime loss to Rogersville. Both Hillcrest and Webb City moved up one spot each in Class 4. Strafford and Clever both dropped out of the top 10 in Class 3, which opened the door for Mt. Vernon to be ranked at No. 9. Billings is not No. 1 for the first time this year as Class 2 Wildcats dropped three games last week to slip to No. 5 in Class 2. Fair Play rose to No. 2 this week in Class 1, but will likely take a dip in the rankings next week after a loss to Everton.
