Columbia (Lake City) still No. 1 in the regional all-classification rankings

GAINESVILLE — The top five teams in The Prep Zone Power Poll remained the same.

Nationally-ranked Columbia (Lake City) was a unanimous selection as the No. 1 team in the all-classification regional rankings, receiving all nine first-place votes.

The Tigers entered their bye week with a 4-0 record. They are ranked 42nd in the country by MaxPreps and are on top of the Class 6A state rankings too.

Class 8A Bartram Trail (St. Johns) stayed at No. 2 after surviving a scare at rival St. Augustine, which is receiving votes in this week’s rankings. The Bears, who are 5-0 for the first time in eight years, held off a furious rally by the Yellow Jackets (2-2) to win 43-40.

North Marion (Citra) cruised to a 41-6 win against winless Gainesville. The Colts (4-0), the defending 5A state runners-up, secured the No. 3 spot for the second consecutive week.

Defending 1A state champion Madison County (5-0) is still fourth, while 5A Dunnellon (5-0) remained fifth.

A pair of Jacksonville teams dropped out of the top 10 after suffering defeats.

While Vanguard (Ocala), which was off, remained sixth, previous No. 7 Sandalwood was upset by Ribault (Jacksonville), 21-14. That dropped the Class 8A Saints (3-1) eight spots to No. 15.

Defending 8A state champion Mandarin, which was ranked 8th, lost at previous No. 10 Robert E. Lee (Jacksonville), 33-27, and fell five spots to No. 13.

Previous No. 9 Oakleaf (Orange Park), which improved to 4-1 with a 26-7 win against Ed White (Jacksonville), moved up two spots to seventh, and Lee (3-1) moved up two spots to 8th.

Flagler Palm Coast and Trinity Christian (Jacksonville), which defeated 4A #2 Miami Carol City, 42-21, are ranked ninth and 10th, respectively.

Class 2A University Christian (Jacksonville) (3-1) is back in the rankings at No. 20 following a 22-13 win against Class 7A First Coast (Jacksonville).

Despite a 42-21 win against Lecanto, previous No. 20 The Villages fell out, but the Buffalo (3-1) are still receiving votes.
