The Lee Central High School football team moved up a spot in the 2A poll because of its Region IV victory over Cheraw, and Sumter moved up a spot in the 5A poll as it awaits its Region VI showdown with Conway on Friday in the S.C. Prep Media Football Poll released on Tuesday.
Two other local teams are ranked the top 10 in their respective polls as well. Scott's Branch reentered the 1A poll, while Manning stayed in the 3A poll despite suffering its second straight loss.
Lee Central moved from sixth to fifth thanks to its 14-7 victory over then No. 4 Cheraw. LC moved up as the Braves fell to No. 7.
The 8-1 Stallions can capture a share of the region title and the region's No. 1 seed in the state playoffs with a road victory at Andrew Jackson High on Friday.
Chesterfield, a region foe of both Lee Central and Cheraw, held steady at No. 10 in the 2A poll.
Sumter moved up a spot from No. 7 to No. 6 because then No. 6 Spartanburg lost to Dorman last week. Conway stayed right behind Sumter in the poll, moving up from eighth to seventh. The Gamecocks and Tigers are both 7-1 overall and 3-0 in region play as they meet on Friday at Sumter Memorial Stadium's Freddie Solomon Field for a 7:30 p.m. game. The winner will claim at least a share of the region title and the region's No. 1 playoff seed.
Manning managed to stay in the 3A poll despite suffering a 48-25 loss to Region VII foe Timberland, the team with which it was tied for sixth in the poll. The 6-2 Monarchs dropped into a tie for 10th with Pendleton, while Timberland is now No. 6 alone.
Scott's Branch is tied with Ridge Spring-Monetta for ninth in the 1A poll. The Eagles defeated St. John's 8-7 last week for their third straight victory.
Hartsville, a Region VI-4A foe for both Lakewood and Crestwood, remained at No. 3 in the 4A poll. The Red Foxes travel to Dalzell on Friday to take on Crestwood.
Scott's Branch joined Region V foe C.E. Murray in the 1A poll. The War Eagles moved from No. 7 to sixth. Two of East Clarendon's Region VI foes, Hemingway and Lake View, remain second and third, respectively in the 1A poll.
The No. 1 team remained the same in each of the five classes with three of them - Fort Dorchester in 5A, South Pointe in 4A and Lamar in 1A - unanimous choices.
Chapman remains atop the 3A poll, getting 13 of the first-place votes with Dillon getting the other. Abbeville is still No. 1 in the 2A poll, but it got 11 first-place votes after getting nine last week. Barnwell remained in second, picking up three No. 1 votes after getting five last week.
