There’s a new No. 1 in the Associated Press prep football poll

Myers Park has been ranked No. 1 in the N.C. Associated Press 4A poll all season. But after winning their biggest test of the season, beating Butler High School 31-13 Friday, the Mustangs have been replaced at the top.

Mallard Creek moved to No. 1 in the 4A poll this week

The Mavericks got three first place votes, compared to six for Myers Park and two for Richmond Senior. The Mavericks moved up from No. 2 to the top spot.

In 3A, after No. 1 Kings Mountain was upset by Hunter Huss, Weddington moved to No. 1. A third Observer-area team is No. 1 in 2A: the Shelby Golden Lions, who will play No. 5 Burns Friday in the biggest 2A game in North Carolina this week.
