Columbia (Lake City) takes over No. 1 spot in all-classification regional football rankings

GAINESVILLE – There’s a new No. 1 in The Prep Zone Power Poll.

Following previous No. 2 Columbia’s (Lake City) convincing win at home against previous No. 1 Trinity Christian (Jacksonville), the Class 6A Tigers have moved up one spot to the top of the all-classification regional rankings.

Columbia (1-0), which defeated Trinity Christian, 38-7, received all nine first-place votes. Meanwhile, the Conquerors (0-1) dropped five spots to sixth in this week’s rankings.

There was a little bit of a shakeup in the rankings this week as five of the top 11 teams lost their season opener.

Vanguard (Ocala) climbed three spots to No. 2 following a 33-15 win at previously receiving votes Gainesville.

Mandarin (Jacksonville) moved up one spot to third. The defending 8A state champions, who defeated Atlantic Coast (Jacksonville), 28-12, at the Bold City Classic at Bolles (Jacksonville), are followed by defending 5A state runner-up North Marion (Citra) and defending 1A state champ Madison County in the top five.

Trinity Christian, Bartram Trail (St. Johns), Nature Coast (Brooksville), Raines (Jacksonville), and The Villages round out the top 10.

Previous No. 16 Chiefland dropped out of the rankings, while Class 8A Spruce Creek (Port Orange) moves into the rankings at No. 20 following a 63-8 win against Seabreeze (Daytona Beach).
