The O'Gorman Knights dominated the Roosevelt Rough Riders this past weekend on the field and have taken the top spot in the Class 11AAA standings.

O'Gorman defeated Roosevelt 36-0 last Friday night. This is the first time this season that the Rough Riders have been knocked out of the top spot in the 11AAA standings, but Roosevelt is still ranked second. Washington continues to fight back after a tough opening schedule, and Watertown has stayed impressive with a 5-1 overall record.

Class 11AA continues to be a bit of a crash-class. Pierre remains number one following a 35-0 win over Spearfish. Yankton has bounced back this season and has jumped to second place after a win over Lincoln. The rest of 11AA continues to be hit-or-miss week to week.

The biggest change of the week comes in Class 11B. The Canton C-Hawks received a few votes in the preseason poll earlier this season and now they have managed to climb the rankings all the way to the top after a win over Bridgewater-Emery/Ethan this past weekend. The C-Hawks are a perfect 6-0 this season.
