Class 2A

The top five spots in the Class 2A coaches' poll has a South Suburban Conference slant this week, as Eastview and Prior Lake continued climbing the rankings. 

The Lightning moved from No. 5 to No. 4 and haven't lost a game this season, including Tuesday night against Prior Lake. Eastview's 1-0 victory over the Lakers secured the league title. 

Prior Lake jumped four spots, landing at No. 5 after an impressive regular season run. The Lakers started the year losing two of their first three games to Lake Conference teams -- one No. 1-2A Wayzata and the other to No. 6-2A Edina. Prior Lake went unbeaten in its next 11 games, including a 0-0 tie with Farmington. The streak ended Tuesday night.

Wayzata and No. 2 Stillwater remained atop the rankings, while Duluth East rose to No. 3 this week.


Class 1A 

Four of the top five teams in the Class 1A rankings stayed the same this week. 

Top-ranked Blake, No. 2 Totino-Grace and No. 3 St. Thomas Academy held down the top three spots, while Holy Angels is again at No. 5.

The new team in the top 5 is Austin. The Packers are undefeated, winning 10 of their 12 games and tying in the other two. They are a point behind Rochester Mayo in the Big 9 Conference standings with two games remaining to play; Rochester Mayo has only one.

The biggest story out of Class 1A is the continued fall of Orono. The Spartans held the No. 1 spot for a majority of the season, but a 3-2 loss to Monticello on Sept. 16 and a 4-4 tie with Holy Family Catholic on Sept. 26 has sent Orono sliding. The Spartans dropped from No. 6 from No. 4 this week.
