South Pittsburg takes over top spot in Class A state rankings

Posted: Updated:

SOUTH PITTSBURG, Tenn. (WRCB) -- South Pittsburg is the first Chattanooga area program to earn a No. 1 ranking in Tennessee after moving to the top of the Class A poll in the latest Associate Press prep rankings released Monday.

The Pirates (7-1), who have won six in a row, received ten of the 18 possible first-place votes after previous No. 1 Humboldt (7-1) suffered its first loss of the year.

South Pittsburg, who has been ranked No. 2 for much of the season, will close the regular season with tough matchups against Polk County and Marion County, both of whom are ranked in the top ten in their respective classes.

Polk County (7-1) moved up one spot to No. 6 in Class 3A this week, while Marion County (7-1) remained No. 4 in Class 2A. Silverdale (8-0), who is the Chattanooga area's lone remaining unbeaten, is No. 5 in Class 2A.

Class 5A continues to boast the most Chattanooga area talent.

Ooltewah (No. 3), East Hamilton (No. 4), Cleveland (No. 7) and Rhea County (No. 10) are all ranked in the top ten; however, they all play head-to-head this week. The Owls (7-1) will travel to Cleveland (6-3), while the Hurricanes (7-1) will visit the Golden Eagles (7-1).

Signal Mountain (6-2) remains No. 10 in Class 4A, while Baylor (5-3) drops three spots to No. 6 in Division II after a second straight loss. McCallie (3-5), which as been ranked since early in the season, dropped from the rankings after a fifth straight loss.
