Football: Atlantic rises to top spot in AP poll; Dwyer, Pahokee hold steady

Atlantic joined Dwyer as the second No. 1 team in the county in the Associated Press’ rankings, which were released Tuesday.

The Eagles (9-0)had previously been ranked second, but moved up a spot after Miami-Columbus dropped its game last week.

Dwyer maintained its top spot in the 7A poll despite needing a last-minute touchdown to defeat Forest Hill. The Panthers maintain a 12-point lead over No. 2 Bradenton-Braden River and an 18-point lead over Fort Lauderdale-St. Thomas Aquinas.

Pahokee is the third and final county team ranked this week. The Blue Devils sit at No. 2 in the state 1A poll, behind Trenton. [More]
