After having a 43-game conference win streak snapped by Hough Friday night, Mallard Creek took a big tumble in the Associated Press N.C. 4A poll.

A statewide panel of media members dropped the Mavericks from No. 1 to No. 6. Hough, which won 31-28 in overtime, entered the poll at No. 10.

Several other area teams are ranked in the 4A poll. Charlotte Catholic, which moved to the top of the Observer’s Sweet 16 poll for the first time this week, is No. 3. A.L. Brown moved up a spot to No. 7.

Wake Forest, which has lost to Mallard Creek in the past two N.C. 4AA state finals, is the new No. 1 team.

Below is the poll:
