New state rankings are out, but expect changes

The problem with state rankings that are voted on each Monday and released Wednesday? There are those pesky games Tuesday.

Meadow Heights' girls team remained No. 2 in the new Class 2 rankings released Wednesday by the state newspapers, but the Panthers are likely to slip next week after a loss Tuesday to Dexter. That loss isn't reflected in the state rankings, which are determined earlier in the week.

Meadow Heights is among six Southeast Missouri girls teams in the new poll. Farmington is No. 6 in Class 4; Crystal City (ninth) and Kennett (10th) are in Class 3; and Couch (fourth) and Neelyville (ninth) join Meadow Heights in Class 2.

Among boys teams, eight from the area are ranked statewide.

In Class 5, Cape Girardeau Central sits at No. 8; Sikeston is No. 1 in Class 4; Charleston is No. 8 in Class 3; Bernie is No. 5 in Class 2; and in Class 1, Scott County Central is No. 1, Summersville No. 6, North Pemiscot No. 8, and Oak Ridge No. 10.
