Patriots climb back up ASWA polls in week 9

With a big upset win over the Bessemer Rebels last Friday the Pike Liberal Arts School Patriots moved back up the Alabama Sports Writers Association AISA poll.

The Patriots now sit at No. 5 after one week of being at No. 9.

Wins for the Charles Henderson High School Trojans and Pike County Bulldogs got them back on the ASWA radar, but not in the Top-10.

The Trojans took out Carroll 62-13 on their home field in Troy and the Bulldogs traveled to Daleville and upset the then-ranked No. 10 Warhawks 27-9.

Both wins were dominating performances for the area teams.

The following are the rankings for the AISA, Class 5A and Class 3A:
