Undefeated East (6-0) and UPrep (5-1) impressed the voters enough over the past week to debut in the latest New York State Sports Writers Association poll released earlier today.

The Eagles won 1 ½ games this past week — finishing off Wilson 13-12 in their suspended game on Tuesday, then shutting down Leadership 32-6 over the weekend – and rose from Honorable Mention to No. 23 in Class A. The Griffins (5-1) also defeated Wilson this past week, and moved into the No. 28 spot in Class B.

Section V representatives in the Class AA poll remained the same as last week, with Aquinas (5-1) moving up one spot to No. 7 after defeating McQuaid (5-1), which dropped the Knights one spot to No. 13. Hilton rose 2 spots to No. 24.

Irondequoit still sets the bar for Class A in the Section, maintaining its No. 5 slot for the third consecutive week. Canandaigua jumped 5 spots with its 12-0 shutout of then No. 9 Victor, and comes in at No. 15. The loss by Victor dropped the Blue Devils 17 spots to No. 26.

Batavia’s 54-point win over Wellsville sent the Blue Devils (6-0) to #6, and Livonia (5-1) rose 3 notches to No. 15 in Class B as the other 2 Section V teams in the Classification. Wayne’s loss to Penn Yan dropped the Eagles out of the poll from No. 10 to Honorable Mention.

Attica (4-2) and Letchworth/Warsaw (5-1) returned to the Class C poll at Nos. 18 and 22, respectively. East Rochester/Gananda (5-1) made it 5 consecutive weeks in the poll, this week at #15 the same spot the Bombers held last week. Penn Yan (5-1) comes in at No. 19 for the fourth consecutive week.

Alexander (6-0) continues to hold down the No. 2 spot in the Class D poll, the same position they have held since the initial poll was released five weeks ago.

Twenty-nine of the section’s 68 teams were recognized in some fashion in this week’s poll.
