With just three weeks to go, the picture of who the genuine contenders for state championships in every classification is becoming clearer.

The best teams in all five classes combined were victorious this past weekend to maintain their lofty status atop the Top 10 rankings.

In Class 5A, West Monroe remains the top-ranked team with Evangel a close second and John Curtis a close third. Acadiana could be better than all three. The Wreckin’ Rams have been extremely impressive.

Then comes a pair of unbeaten teams in Scotlandville and Covington. The Hornets have an off week before facing a big game with Zachary on Oct. 27 while the Lions travel to Northshore Friday night. Barbe, Rummel and Catholic are all solid teams with one loss and defending champion Landry-Walker is back in at No. 10 after shutting out John Ehret.

In 4A, Karr is the top-ranked team with St. Thomas More holding on to second after a come-from-behind win over rival Teurlings Catholic. Warren Easton is a very close third with unbeatens Benton and Lakeshore fourth and fifth. Neville survived a trip to Franklinton and is sixth with McDonogh 35 seventh. Rivals E.D. White Catholic and Vandebilt Catholic are eighth and ninth and will square off in week 10. Parkview Baptist moves back in at No. 10 after a huge win over Plaquemine.

In 3A, De La Salle and University Lab remain perhaps the two most impressive overall teams in the state and are poised for a playoff showdown, perhaps in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Sterlington is a solid third with West Feliciana fourth and unbeaten Jena fifth. Injury-plagued St. Charles Catholic is sixth with Iowa seventh. St. James is eighth and the Wildcats face De La Salle in a district showdown this week. Unbeatens Archbishop Hannan and Caldwell Parish are ninth and 10th.

In 2A, Notre Dame stays first with Amite a solid second. Catholic of New Iberia is third with unbeaten Newman up to fourth after beating Riverside. Welsh remained unbeaten and is fifth. Many is sixth with St. Helena seventh. The Hawks have a showdown at home against Amite Friday night. Dunham is eighth with Mangham ninth. Riverside, despite four losses, is still 10th. The Rebels are still one of the best teams in the class.

In 1A, defending state champion Logansport is first with Kentwood second and Haynesville third. Oak Grove is fourth with West St. John looking very impressive in the fifth spot. Unbeatens Cedar Creek and Lafayette Christian are sixth and seventh. Opelousas Catholic is eighth with Catholic of Pointe Coupee ninth and Ascension Catholic falling to 10th after a loss to Southern Lab.
