La Vega advances 1 spot in poll as neighborhood gets big shakeup

La Vega advances 1 spot in poll as neighborhood gets big shakeup

As many teams around the state took a breather before district play starts Friday, La Vega nevertheless advanced one spot in the Class 4A Div. I rankings, up to No. 6, due to a shakeup above.

No. 2 Corpus Christi Calallen and No. 4 Tyler Chapel Hill both lost on Friday night, dropping out of the poll entirely. But that wasn't the biggest surprise as eighth-ranked Melissa stunned No. 1 Argyle, the defending state champion and regular-season nemesis of the Pirates, with a 21-0 shutout.

That jumped the Cardinals past La Vega in the poll, up to No. 4, while the Eagles slid to No. 5.

Additionally, La Vega's district mate, Midlothian Heritage, entered the poll at No. 9. That puts three 5-4A teams in the state rankings, along with No 2-ranked Stephenville. La Vega hosts the Yellow Jackets this week to open district and also gets Heritage at home on Oct. 22.

Elsewhere in the rankings, thing were stable for local teams.

China Spring stayed No. 5 after an open week before hosting Jarrell this Friday to begin district play. No. 7 West and No. 10 Lorena easily handled Dallas Madison and Troy, moving to 2-0 in district play, while No. 4 Crawford handled Tolar to keep its record spotless.

Both undefeated, No. 1 Mart and No. 10 Chilton were off last week and they'll meet to open 10-2A play at Panther Stadium on Friday. In six-man, Jonesboro, Abbott and Live Oak all 45ed their opponents last week to remain ranked No. 3, No. 5 and No. 1 in their respective divisions.
