Class 4A
1. Skyline 3-1
2. Bothell 4-0
3. Auburn 4-0
4. Jackson 4-0
5. Ferris 3-1
6. Gonzaga Prep 3-1
7. Curtis 4-0
8. Wenatchee 4-0
9. South Kitsap 4-0
10. Bethel 3-1
Next: Central Valley, Eastlake, Eisenhower, Kentwood, Marysville-Pilchuck, Olympia, Skyview, Southridge, University

Quite a bit of movement here as Week 4 ranked teams Eastlake, Southridge and Olympia all lost. Jackson vaults into the No. 4 slot and Ferris overtakes Gonzaga Prep, despite losing to the Bullpups three weeks ago, based on the strength of its victory over Mount Spokane on Thursday.

Wenatchee, South Kitsap and Bethel all enter the rankings for the first time this season.

Class 3A
1. Lakes 4-0
2. Liberty 4-0
3. Union 3-1
4. O’Dea 3-1
5. Bellevue 2-2
6. Meadowdale 4-0
7. Timberline 4-0
8. Mount Spokane 3-1
9. Juanita 4-0
10. Camas 3-1
Next: Bonney Lake, Enumclaw, Glacier Peak, Kennedy Catholic, Mount Rainier, Mount Vernon, Peninsula, Rainier Beach.

Lakes survived a scare against Enumclaw and retains its No. 1 ranking. All seems right again in Wolverine-land, with Bellevue back to beating up on KingCo 3A opponents.

Three ranked teams (Mount Spokane, Glacier Peak and Camas) lost in Week 4, though the Grizzlies are the only ones to fall out of the rankings. Juanita makes its first appearance in the Top 10 this season.

Class 2A
1. Ellensburg 4-0
2. Archbishop Murphy 3-1
3. Lynden 3-1
4. Interlake 4-0
5. Othello 3-1
6. Prosser 3-1
7. W.F. West 4-0
8. Mark Morris 3-1
9. Spokane West Valley 4-0
10. North Mason 4-0
Next: Black Hills, Burlington-Edison, Blaine, Cedarcrest, Deer Park, R.A. Long, Selah, Sequim, Squalicum, Tumwater, Woodland

Every Top 10 team won in Week 4 and no new teams have cracked the rankings. There was some movement, however.

We bumped Interlake down two spots. Still impressed with Brett Kirschner and the Saints high-powered offense, but they’ve got to start playing some defense. Lynden scored a huge win over rival Ferndale, thumping the Golden Eagles, 31-0.

Class 1A
1. Montesano 4-0
2. Connell 4-0
3. Cascade Christian 4-0
4. Cashmere 2-1
5. Zillah 3-1
6. Orting 3-1
7. Leavenworth Cascade 3-0
8. Royal 3-1
9. Nooksack Valley 3-1
10. Meridian 3-1
Next: Castle Rock, Goldendale, LaCenter, Okanogan, Port Townsend, Vashon

Zillah rockets from unranked to No. 5 after beating previously third-ranked Royal. Vashon tumbled out of the rankings after losing to Port Townsend.

Class 2B
1. Colfax 3-0
2. LaSalle 4-0
3. Asotin 4-0
4. Naselle 4-0
5. Adna 4-0

Class 1B
1. Cusick 4-0
2. Lacrosse-Washtucna-Kahlotus 4-0
3. Almira-Coulee/Hartline 4-0
4. Neah Bay 4-0
5. Colton 3-0
