Lions up one spot
in latest ranking
Dresden has moved up one more spot in the polls.
The Lions, 5-1 following a 35-20 win over Union City on Friday night, jumped from seventh to sixth in this week’s vote by the Associated Press.
The Lions take over that spot from McKenzie, which dropped to ninth this week.
Boyd Buchanan is still the top-ranked team, followed by Trousdale County, Grace Christian, Hampton and Humboldt as the top five spots did not change.
Friendship Christian is ranked seventh, followed by Adamsville. Cascade is the No. 10 team.
Dresden, which has won 13 of its last 16 regular season games, will look to keep its climb going this week with a trip to West Carroll.
