CLASS 4A
1. Skyline (5-1)
2. Curtis (6-0)
3. Ferris (6-0)
4. Bothell (5-1)
5. Kentwood (6-0)
6. Gonzaga Prep (5-1)
7. Chiawana (6-0)
8. Union (5-1)
9. Issaquah (5-1)
10. Rogers (Puyallup) (5-1)
Next: Arlington (5-1), Auburn (4-2), Bellarmine Prep (6-0), Bethel (4-2), Davis (5-1), Eastlake (5-1), Gig Harbor (5-1), Graham-Kapowsin (4-2), Kentlake (5-1), Lake Stevens (5-1), Mead (4-2), Olympia (5-1), Richland (5-1), Skyview (4-2).

Only one team in the previous week’s top 10 lost and that team (Auburn) has fallen out of the rankings. Still, a few teams shuffled spots. Ferris leapfrogged Kentwood, Bothell and Gonzaga Prep after handling previously undefeated Mount Spokane, 35-14. Gonzaga Prep, which lost to Mount Spokane earlier this season, occupies Ferris’ former No. 6 ranking.

Rogers of Puyallup makes its debut in the rankings this week at No. 10. The Rams have won five in a row since a season-opening loss to Curtis.

CLASS 3A
1. Bellevue (5-1)
2. Camas (6-0)
3. Capital (6-0)
4. Juanita (5-1)
5. Liberty (4-2)
6. Lakes (5-1)
7. Kamiakin (6-0)
8. Mount Spokane (5-1)
9. Glacier Peak (5-1)
10. O’Dea (5-1)
Next: Bonney Lake (5-1), Eastmont (4-2), Enumclaw (3-3), Everett (4-1), Ferndale (4-2), Franklin (5-1), Kennedy Catholic (5-1), Meadowdale (4-2), Mount Si (4-2), Rainier Beach (5-1), Timberline (4-2).

Mount Spokane tumbled four spots to eighth after losing to Ferris, 35-14. Juanita, Liberty and Lakes each climbed one spot. Juanita played Bellevue close, losing 21-14, and it’s difficult to drop a team in the rankings for losing to the No. 1 team by a touchdown.

CLASS 2A
1. Archbishop Murphy (6-0)
2. Lynden (6-0)
3. Tumwater (5-1)
4. Burlington-Edison (6-0)
5. W.F. West (5-1)
6. Prosser (5-1)
7. Eatonville (6-0)
8. Lindbergh (5-1)
9. Othello (4-2)
10. Centralia (5-1)
Next: Anacortes (5-1), Clarkston (4-2), Deer Park (5-1), Ellensburg (4-2), Fife (4-2), Lakewood (4-2), Lindbergh (5-1), Mark Morris (4-2), Port Angeles (6-0), R.A. Long (5-1), River Ridge (5-1), Sequim (5-1), Toppenish (5-1), Washington (3-3).

Lots of movement in the bottom-half of the rankings this week after previously ranked teams Clarkston, Centralia and Lakewood lost last week.

Eatonville lost its leading rusher and middle linebacker, Shane Saunders, to a season-ending knee injury, but the Cruisers played well in a win over Clover Park last week and rise to seventh. Lindbergh and Othello made a return to the rankings.

CLASS 1A
1. Cascade Christian (6-0)
2. Meridian (6-0)
3. King’s (6-0)
4. Cashmere (6-0)
5. Connell (5-1)
6. Montesano (6-0)
7. Chelan (5-1)
8. Colville (6-0)
9. Zillah (6-0)
10. Royal (5-1)
Next: Chewelah (5-1), Nooksack Valley (4-2), Onalaska (5-1), Orting (4-2), River View (4-2), Toledo (5-1).

All ten teams won and there was no movement.

CLASS 2B
1. Colfax (5-0)
2. Napavine (6-0)
3. South Bend (5-1)
4. Waitsburg-Prescott (5-0)
5. Tacoma Baptist (5-1)
Next: Adna, Asotin, DeSales, Liberty Christian, Lind-Ritzville/Sprague, Morton/White Pass, Oroville, Reardan.

CLASS 1B
1. Cusick (6-0)
2. Lummi (3-1)
3. Almira/Coulee-Hartline (6-0)
4. Lyle/Wishram (3-2)
5. St. John-Endicott (4-1)
