Super 10 rankings

Rank (Previous) School, Record, Classification

1. (1) Bolles (6-1), Class 4A

Last week: lost to Gainesville Buchholz, 14-7.

This week: vs. Tru Prep Academy (4-2), 7:30 p.m.

Notable: The Bulldogs suffered their first loss of the season at Buchholz last week. Thought about either Bartram or Riverside here, but the Bulldogs have been too good and consistent over the course of the season to move down.

2. (2) Bartram Trail (7-1), Class 8A

Last week: d. Oakleaf, 49-33.

This week: vs. Sandalwood (3-5, 1-2)*.

Notable: The Bears put a bow on the District 1-8A title last week with a big win over Oakleaf, putting up a season-high in points. Tough closing stretch for Bartram, with Sandalwood and then a rugged Buchholz team on the schedule.

3. (5) Riverside (7-1), Class 6A

Last week: d. Trinity Christian, 28-20.

This week: at Westside (2-6, 1-2), Thursday, 6:30 p.m.*

Notable: The Generals jump a couple spots after a solid victory over previous No. 3 Trinity. That was an excellent bounceback win after a loss to Columbia, followed by a bye week. Riverside is positioned for a nine-win regular season and likely a No. 5 or 6 seed in Region 1-6A.

4. (6) St. Augustine (5-2), Class 6A

Last week: d. Matanzas, 37-21*.

This week: vs. Gainesville (6-2, 3-0)*

Notable: Game of the season for the Yellow Jackets, who can wrap up the District 4-6A title with a win over the Purple Hurricanes. St. Augustine’s two losses have come to Bolles and Bartram Trail by a combined 17 points.

5. (7) Raines (6-2), Class 5A

Last week: d. Ribault, 30-0*.

This week: vs. (8) Columbia (6-3), Thursday, 6:30 p.m.

Notable: The Vikings have been very strong in Donovan Masline’s second season as head coach. They pasted rival Ribault in the Northwest Classic and have a shot at an eight-win regular season.

6. (7) Baker County (6-2), Class 5A

Last week: d. White, 36-16.

This week: at Suwannee (4-5, 1-2), 7:30 p.m.*

Notable: The Wildcats won their game of the season convincingly and wrapped up the District 2-5A title in the process. They’ve got an eight-win regular season well within their grasp.

7. (3) Trinity Christian (6-3), Class 2A

Last week: lost to Riverside, 28-20.

This week: Off.

Notable: The Conquerors have struggled against a more challenging schedule in the second half of the season. They’ve got Tallahassee Lincoln to close the regular season next week. Still, Trinity should be a pick to play for the Class 2A state championship.

8. (4) Columbia (6-3), Class 6A

Last week: lost to Madison County, 28-16.

This week: at (5) Raines (6-2), Thursday, 6:30 p.m.

Notable: Tough loss on the road to Madison County, followed by another challenging opponent this week in the red-hot Vikings. The Tigers are already the District 3-6A champs and have a top four seed in Region 1-6A locked in.

9. (NR) Fletcher (5-3), Class 2A

Last week: d. First Coast, 44-14*.

This week: at Ponte Vedra (3-5, 1-3)*

Notable: One of the area’s hottest teams, the Senators are riding a five-game winning streak and wrapped up the District 3-7A title last week. Fletcher’s three losses are by a combined 13 points.

10. (10) Creekside (6-2), Class 8A

Last week: Off.

This week: vs. Oakleaf (4-4, 1-2)*.

Notable: Creekside has dropped back-to-back games entering Week 10 and needs to close out strong to bolster its RPI. A playoff spot looks good right now for the Knights, but winning out would solidify that.

Dropped out

University Christian (5-3, Class 2A).
