Buchholz (Gainesville) still No. 1 but Trinity Christian gains ground

GAINESVILLE — Mother Nature had her way last week in Gainesville.

Buchholz’s game against city rival Eastside was called late in the first quarter, with the Bobcats leading 7-0, due to weather. After attempts to play the game at a later date failed, the game ended as a no-contest.

Despite the cancellation, Buchholz remained on top of The Prep Zone Power Poll.

However, the Bobcats lost a couple of first-place votes in the process as they received eight of the 11 first-place votes.

Buchholz did hold on to the top spot in the all-classification regional rankings but No. 2 Trinity Christian (Jacksonville) received the other three top votes to close the gap.

The Bobcats (2-0) edged the Conquerors (3-0), 217-212, in total voting points.

Buchholz is ranked second in the state in Class 4S by MaxPreps while Trinity Christian is ranked third in Class 1M.

Both teams have big games this week as top-ranked Buchholz travels to No. 12 Creekside (St. Johns) for a Class 4S-District 3 game and Trinity Christian hosts previous No. 3 Bolles (Jacksonville), which dropped to sixth in this week’s rankings following a 20-3 loss at Brunswick (GA).

Bartram Trail (St. Johns), which is in a loaded district with Buchholz, moved up four spots to No. 3 following a 17-3 win at previous No. 5 Mainland (Daytona), which tumbled six spots to No. 11.

Hawthorne, which is ranked second in Class 1R, remained fourth following a 36-18 win at Terry Parker (Jacksonville).

Fleming Island (Orange Park) rounds out the top five. The Golden Eagles, who are ranked 9th in Class 4S, moved up three spots after a 19-14 win at Nease (Ponte Vedra).

Bolles (2-1) leads off the second five at No. 6, followed by Madison County and Vanguard (Ocala), who are tied for seventh.

North Marion (Citra) and University Christian (Jacksonville) round out the top 10 at ninth and 10th, respectively.

Previous No. 20 St. Augustine (1-2) dropped out of the rankings following a 34-14 loss on a neutral field to AAAAA #8 Coffee (Douglas, GA) and Flagler Palm Coast (2-0) took their spot at No. 20 after a 35-14 win at previous #18 Spruce Creek (Port Orange), which also dropped out.
