The latest prep football poll is out, and Aaron VanTuyl is not here with his usual hot takes about the most recent poll, so I’ll have to do it for him.
W.F. West fell to 3A Lake Washington 28-23 last week on the road, and the loss dropped the Bearcats from 5th to 9th. The most surprising part of the 2A rankings was Tumwater, not moving from the No. 4 spot after their second straight loss last weekend to 4A Union 33-29. I understand that the opponent was in a higher classification, but if W.F. West falls a few spots, I figure you have to do the same for Tumwater.
In the 2B’s, Kalama remains in the top spot and will face Winlock, coming off of a big win against Chief Leschi, 61-6. Can the Cardinals use that confidence from last weekend and knock off Kalama? Iowa almost beat Penn State, that’s all I’m saying.
The 2B’s will have all eyes focused on the SWW 2B Mountain Division matchup of No. 3 Napavine on the road against No. 4 Adna. Adna had an unexpected bye week when Life Christian decided to forfeit, while Napavine was able to earn a win over Onalaska 40-8, knocking the Loggers from the ranks of the undefeated. Rainier moved up to No. 6 with a 41-40 win over Morton-White Pass last week, and will have another tough test against Onalaska, who I’m sure will be ready to hit somebody to take out the frustration of their loss against Napavine. Toledo won 14-12 over Pe Ell-Willapa Valley last week, and both stayed in the rankings as the Indians are tied at No. 7 with Colfax (near Pullman for geographical reference) and Pe Ell-Willapa Valley taking the 9 spot.
