Lady Polar Bears take top spot, FSHS boys fall out

FAIRMONT — In the girls’ Associated Press poll, released Monday, a new number one has been crowned for the second week in a row. Here’s the breakdown:

LOOKING BACK: Summers County was on a roll until the end of the week when it lost to PikeView, 45-29, at the end of the week. The only other two teams to lose in the top 10 were to other top 10 opponents as Lincoln fell to North Marion and Scott fell to Summers County. Fairmont Senior, Westside, North Marion, Sissonville, Clay County, Keyser and PikeView all won each of their games.

ON TOP: Fairmont Senior has been itching for the top spot all season and now, after winning 14 straight games, the Lady Polar Bears sit atop the poll. Fairmont Senior played just one game last week after a top-five showdown with North Marion was postponed due to weather. The time off may have gotten to Fairmont Senior as they allowed Grafton to keep their game close on Saturday, but the Lady Polar Bears took home the win and leapt to the top spot after Summers County was downed by PikeView.

MOVING UP/FALLING DOWN: With Fairmont Senior moving up, Summers County fell to second, leaving Westside, North Marion and Sissonville to finish out the top five. With Lincoln’s loss to North Marion, the Lady Cougars slid down from sixth to seventh. With wins, Clay County was able to jump into the sixth spot while a loss dropped Scott from eighth to tenth. Keyser stayed put at ninth while PikeView jumped up to eighth after taking down the number one team.

BIG 10 STAYING STRONG: With Fairmont Senior taking over, the Big 10 now sits on top the poll. North Marion and Lincoln still give the Big 10 three teams in the top 10.

BIG MATCHUPS: No. 1 Fairmont Senior will begin its reign against AAA Preston, which sits just outside the AAA top 10. No. 10 Scott has a rough week coming up as they’ll play No. 5 Sissonville, No. 3 Westside and No. 2 Summers County this week in that order.
