Patriots remain No. 5

The Pike Liberal Patriots remained the only team in the Alabama Sports Writers Association rankings for Week 10.

The Patriots won the AISA Class AAA, Region 1 title with a 33-7 win over Macon-East Friday night to remain at No. 5 in the poll.

There was not much movement in the AISA polls after Week 9.

The big change was former No. 10 Lee-Scott dropping out and the team that beat them, Fort Dale, taking over the final spot in the Top-10.

The Charles Henderson Trojans received two points in the Class 5A poll, but could not crack the Top-10 with a 10-0 win over region foe Eufaula.

Pike County fell from consideration with a 7-0 loss to Geneva last week.

The Class 5A poll has the same teams from last week, but the bottom five are shuffled around after Week 9.

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