Week 3 of the high school football season in South Dakota is here and a few teams have started to secure the top spots.

*Note, only 7 voters took place in this week's poll. This is compared to 9 that typically vote*

11AAA
After Presidents Bowl weekend, the Rough Riders have claimed the top spot following a 35-10 win over O'Gorman. Washington, still undefeated and off a strong win over Lincoln, fell one spot but are right behind Roosevelt. The Knights and Patriots remain ranked following losses to the top two teams.

2. Tri-Valley 2-0 26 2

Class 9AA
Three teams continue to receive first place votes this week in 9AA. The race for the top still features Wolsey-Wessington at the top but Canistota and Webster Area now tied in votes for second place. Bon Homme and Chester Area just flipped positions, which is a little surprising voting wise with Bon Homme on a bye last week.
