Teutopolis’ boys fell one slot, from seventh to eighth, after a 9-3 start to the season, but wins over Breese Central and Class 3A Effingham.

The Hearts received 19 votes.

Rounding out the girls’ polls, Negoa received seven votes in Class 1A, for an unofficial ranking of 16th. The Lady Indians finished third in the Monticello tournament, and are 11-4 to start the year.
