With a pair of top-10 teams losing last week, the Class 4A poll has a different look entering Week 8.

Poteau and Clinton, previously No. 3 and 4 respectively, fell in Week 7 and dropped in the poll as well. That opened room for Douglass and Ada to move into the top four spots this week.

With its win over Poteau, Cascia Hall moves up from 10th to 8th, ahead of last week’s victim. And injury-riddled Clinton hangs onto a spot in the poll at No. 10, but is a rebound in the future? The Red Tornadoes will need to get healthy to keep themselves in the top 10.

With the teams dropping above them, Woodward actually gained two spots in the poll after an 18-15 loss to No. 1 Anadarko, showing that the Boomer defense is pretty serious this season.

Here’s The Oklahoman’s Class 4A poll:

Rank, Team, Record (Prev.)
1. Anadarko, 7-0 (1)
2. Wagoner, 7-0 (2)
3. Douglass, 6-1 (5)
4. Ada, 6-1 (6)
5. Catoosa, 5-2 (7)
6. Woodward, 5-2 (8)
7. Sallisaw, 5-2 (9)
8. Cascia Hall, 6-1 (10)
9. Poteau, 6-1 (3)
10. Clinton, 4-3 (4)
Dropped out: None
