TACOMA NEWS TRIBUNE’S FINAL 2011 FOOTBALL RANKINGS

These are The News Tribune’s final rankings of the 2011 season. The state playoffs begin this week and we’ll have coverage throughout the week. I’ll do a live chat at noon on Thursday, so come back to the blog then and join us to talk football.

CLASS 4A
1. Bellarmine Prep (10-0)
2. Woodinville (10-0)
3. Ferris (9-1)
4. Eastlake (9-1)
5. Federal Way (10-0)
6. Mead (9-1)
7. Olympia (9-1)
8. Lake Stevens (10-0)
9. Skyview (8-2)
10. Kentlake (10-0)

The big change is that Chiawana, previously undefeated and ranked third, falls out after being shut out 24-0 by Central Valley last week. In the Riverhawks’ place, SPSL North champion Kentlake returns to the Top 10. The Falcons thrashed Mariner 49-7 last week and earned their return to the rankings.

Among the unranked are four teams – Bethel, Central Valley, Skyline and Union – that have spent time in the Top 10 this season. That’s proof that, this year more than ever, Class 4A is wide open. We’re going to see some wild, exciting games.

CLASS 3A
1. Bellevue (10-0)
2. Lakes (10-0)
3. O’Dea (10-0)
4. Kamiakin (10-0)
5. Camas (9-1)
6. Meadowdale (10-0)
7. Seattle Prep (9-1)
8. Kennewick (9-1)
9. Mercer Island (8-2)
10. Kennedy Catholic (9-1)

Peninsula, ranked seventh last week, exits the Top 10 after falling to Mount Si, 17-14. Kennedy Catholic re-enters the rankings after a strong performance against Lincoln.

I considered ranking Capital – the Cougars have won seven straight games and seem to get better each week – but settled on the Lancers.

CLASS 2A
1. Lynden (10-0)
2. Tumwater (7-1)
3. Prosser (9-1)
4. North Thurston (9-1)
5. Othello (8-2)
6. Archbishop Murphy (9-1)
7. Lakewood (9-1)
8. Deer Park (9-1)
