Four teams have jumped into the top spot of their class following the conclusion of the regular season. Here's the South Dakota Sportswriters football poll for October 25.

Class 11AAA

It was a question all season long on who was the real top team between Washington and Roosevelt. The answer, at least to this point, was determined last Thursday night when the Warriors defeated the Rough Riders 35-28. Roosevelt was the top team in the Sportswriters poll since the preseason rankings, and they even continued to receive a first place vote. Brandon Valley jumped up one spot following a win over Aberdeen Central, and a O'Gorman loss to Lincoln. Aberdeen Central remains ranked fifth.

  1. SF Washington (7) 9-0 39 2
  2. SF Roosevelt (1) 8-1 33 1
  3. Brandon Valley 6-3 23 4
  4. SF O’Gorman 6-3 17 3
  5. Aberdeen Central 4-5 6 5

Class 11AA

If there is one thing that has been consistent this season with 11AA it's the top two teams. Mitchell is ranked first this week after finishing the season 8-1 with their lone loss to Harrisburg. The first place votes were the difference this week with the Tigers falling to second, and the new ranking matches the seeding for the 11AA tournament. Huron and Spearfish remained steady, while Pierre jumped back into the top five following a win over Sturgis Brown.

  1. Mitchell (5) 8-1 37 2
  2. Harrisburg (3) 7-2 35 1
  3. Huron 4-5 22 3
  4. Spearfish 5-4 13 4
  5. Pierre 4-5 10 RV

Class 11A

I'm probably not alone on this, but if there is one class that I'm paying attention to in the playoffs it's 11A. Tea Area, St. Thomas More, and Madison have been the favorites in the class throughout most of the season. Sioux Falls Christian has been close behind, even with playing a 8-game 11B schedule, and could be dangerous. Dell Rapids remains ranked fifth after a 56-14 win over Lennox.

  1. Tea Area (7) 9-0 39 1
  2. St. Thomas More (1) 9-0 31 2
  3. Madison 8-1 26 3
  4. SF Christian 8-1 16 4
  5. Dell Rapids 7-2 8 5

Class 11B

The story remains the same in 11B: who will stop the Winner Warriors? We will find out if anyone can during the post season, but Winner finished the season a perfect 8-0 while giving up just 22 points total. Bridgewater-Emery/Ethan made the biggest jump of the week moving from fifth to second. Groton Area suffered their first loss of the year to Parkston. Tri-Valley has separated from Sioux Valley and secured the fourth ranking after a loss to Sioux Falls Christian.

  1. Winner (8) 8-0 39 1
  2. Bridgewater-Emery/Ethan 5-3 22 5
  3. Groton Area 7-1 21 2
  4. Tri-Valley 5-3 16 T3
  5. Sioux Valley 5-3 13 T3

Class 9AA

Canistota was sailing in first place in 9AA for the last few weeks, but the run stopped in the final week of the regular season as they lost to Bon Homme 15-12. Gregory is the new top team after finishing the regular season undefeated. Webster Area also finished undefeated, but received no first place votes. Wolsey-Wessington moved up one spot with the Canistota loss. Baltic is the only team in 9AA that didn't move up the poll this week.

  1. Gregory (7) 8-0 39 2
  2. Webster Area 8-0 22 3
  3. Wolsey-Wessington 7-1 19 4
  4. Canistota (1) 7-1 17 1
  5. Baltic 8-0 14 5

Class 9A

Potter County wanted a statement win to end their undefeated season, so why not defeat the team that was ranked number one throughout the year in Sully Buttes? They did so on all accounts with a 50-14 win and a rocket move to the top spot of 9A. Warner received as many votes (35 total) but was behind Potter County in first place votes. Colman-Egan and Castlewood/Estelline remained ranked in their previous positions.

  1. Potter County (4) 8-0 35 3
  2. Warner (3) 8-0 35 2
  3. Sully Buttes 7-1 24 1
  4. Colman-Egan 7-1 18 4
  5. Castlewood/Estelline 7-1 8 T5

Class 9B

Chalk across the board for 9B as the regular season came to a close. Corsica-Stickney and Harding County finished the season undefeated at 8-0. Langford Area continues to receive a first place vote even with one loss on their resume. Colome and Hamlin continue to be ranked fourth and fifth overall.

  1. Corsica-Stickney (6) 8-0 38 1
  2. Harding County (1) 8-0 31 2
  3. Langford Area (1) 7-1 24 3
  4. Colome 7-1 19 4
  5. Hamlin 6-2 6 5
