Two other girls squads - Helias in Class 4 and St. Elizabeth in Class 1 - are receiving votes in their respective classes.

On the boys side, the Fatima Comets are now No. 4 in the Class 3 rankings. Fatima also captured team honors last week at the Southern Boone Classic to improve to 20-1.

Southern Boone is receiving votes in the Class 3 rankings. And although they're a Class 3 school, the Eugene Eagles are receiving votes in the Class 2 poll.
