LITTLE ROCK ARPreps.com Rankings for Week 4, Sept 23:
1.) Bentonville (4-0) — Beat the former no. 2 team in 7A handily. Can anyone beat them?
2.) Fort Smith Southside (3-1) — They cruised over Rogers, good enough to pull them into second.
3.) Conway (3-1) — Second straight dominant win, this one over Cabot. The Wampus Cats are getting better.
4.) Har-Ber (3-1) — A couple of dominant wins make Har-Ber an easy choice to join the rankings.
5.) West Memphis (4-0) — Thrashed Little Rock Hall, good enough to keep you in the rankings. The real test will be next week when the Blue Devils play Marion.
1.) El Dorado (4-0) — Took a laugher at home against Little Rock Fair that wasn't even as close as the score.
2.) Marion (4-0) — Beating no. 4 Searcy? Even by just a 36-31 margin, makes the Patriots look really good heading deeper into 7A/6A East Conference play.
3.) Lake Hamilton (3-1) — A 41-0 shutout of Sheridan keeps them in the rankings.
4.) Searcy (3-1) — Gets a reprieve because it was a close loss to another ranked squad. Good games get rewarded.
5.) Pine Bluff (2-2) — Not sure what that says about the talent pool in 6A, but a good win over Benton tonight brings the Zebras back into the rankings after a week away.
1.) Greenwood (4-0) — Another week, another dominant win. This one of a good Siloam Springs team.
2.) Greenbrier (4-0) — Green teams still rule the roost in 5A. Beat down Harrison on the road.
3.) Alma (3-1) — Beating a previously-ranked Morrilton team can help keep you in it. But they'll need a more convincing win in the near future to stick around.
4.) Monticello (3-0-1) — A 19-7 win over sub-par Mills isn't how you normally move up. But it keeps them in it.
5.) Camden Fairview (3-1) — After a season-opening loss to powerhouse El Dorado, the Cardinals have rolled their last three opponents an average of 36-11. Welcome to the party.
1.) Pulaski Academy (4-0) — Routing a mediocre Maumelle team? Well, it's Pulaski Academy. They stay looking down on 4A.
2.) Heber Springs (4-0) — Hung 63 on Lonoke. That offense gets better and better.
3.) Ashdown (4-0) — The Panthers opened the 4A-7 Conference season with a 28-0 shutout at Pulaski Robinson, they're second shutout in four games. The defense hasn't lost a step from last season.
4.) Gravette (4-0) — Some impressive wins slides them into the rankings. Keep it up and there's plenty of room for improvement.
5.) Pottsville (3-0-1) — Honestly, that season-opening tie stuck with them in a negative light for awhile. But the Apaches have recovered and look very good with a lot of young talent.
1.) Harding Academy (3-1) — Allowed seven points the last two weeks and dispatched Episcopal Collegiate 49-7. Stay on top with those kind of numbers.
2.) Greenland (4-0) — A shutout of Marshall (41-0) keeps them at no. 2. A solid team in NWA.
3.) Arkansas Baptist (4-0) — The Eagles have been shutting everyone down, this week is was a shutout of Barton. Now they get ready to welcome in Harding Academy for what will probably be the 3A-2 Conference title game.
4.) Fordyce (4-0) — Pounding a relatively weak Genoa Central team 49-0 does enough to hold a team steady. That's a win that is how it should be.
5.) Earle (4-0) — Same as the Redbugs, hanging a big number — 62 — on a struggling team (Bald Knob) keeps you a spot, it doesn't boost it.
1.) Magazine (4-0) — A schlacking of Union Christian (49-18) shows that the Rattlers can do no wrong right now. Staying on top.
2.) Danville (4-0) — Their shutout of Western Yell County made them even more viable for the no. 1 spot, but they might need a loss or at least a close win by Magazine to take it away from them.
3.) East Poinsett County (4-0) — Blanking Cross County 48-0 makes the Warriors look good, but the rankings bow to no one for a win they should get.
4.) Bearden (3-0) — A win on the road against a very good Strong team? That'll push you up a spot. That and a loss by previous no. 4 Magnet Cove.
5.) Carlisle (4-0) — Bo Weddle makes this team go, but regardless, they've been dominant, allowing only one opponent double-digit points and going for 30+ in each game. Hello, rankings.
