Three local teams move up in power poll
Spanish Fort, Davidson, and St. Pauls all jumped either two or three spots over the past week.
After beating Baldwin County 20-0, Spanish Fort jumped into the top 10, at the No. 9 spot. The Toros are off this week, but they travel to take on No. 5 Blount on Sept. 30.
The Leopards stayed in their spot after beating B.C. Rain 38-0. The No. 1 6A takes on the No. 1 7A team in McGill-Toolen, who remained in the No. 1 spot of this poll after beating Foley 38-10.
The other two local teams in the poll both climbed two spots together. Davidson, which beat Theodore 39-0, moved up to No. 12, and St. Paul’s moved to No. 13 after clobbering Dothan 42-0.
Both teams are off this week, but on Sept 30, the Warriors travel to Semmes to take on Montgomery, and the Saints will play at Jackson.
Hoover, Opelika and Hewitt-Trussville were ranked between McGill and Blount, in that order. Hillcrest-Tuscaloosa, Lee-Montgomery and Minor followed the Leopards at Nos. 7, 8 and 9.
Central-Phenix City rounded out the top ten.
No. 14 Enterprise travels to Theodore this Friday, and both Mary G. Montgomery and UMS-Wright were in the “receiving votes” category.
