Christian Heritage’s come-from-behind upset of Oklahoma Christian had the biggest impact on the Class 2A rankings in an otherwise ho-hum week in the class.

Hartshorne steps in to take the No. 10 spot with OCS dropping out of the poll this week. The Miners have a couple of solid wins over Panama and Hugo, with their only loss to Stigler, which is 6-2 in Class 3A.

Dropping OCS out of the poll wasn’t easy. The Saints have wins over Class 3A Jones and 2A opponents Tonkawa, Crooked Oak and Dibble — all teams with four wins or more. And their losses to Metro Christian and Millwood are certainly respectable. But the CHA upset was enough to slightly tip the scale against them this week.

Nowata, which was in the top 10 previously, is 7-1, but has only two wins over teams with at least four victories on the season, and one of those is against independent Regent Prep. So they remained on the outside of the top 10 for now.

There’s also a slew of two-loss teams trying to build a case for a spot in the top 10.

For now, here’s how The Oklahoman’s Class 2A top 10 stands:

Rank, Team, Record (Prev.)
1. Millwood, 8-0 (1)
2. Davis, 8-0 (2)
3. Vian, 8-0 (3)
4. Hennessey, 7-1 (4)
5. Commerce, 8-0 (6)
6. Meeker, 8-0 (7)
7. Adair, 7-1 (8)
8. Washington, 7-1 (9)
9. Chisholm, 7-1 (10)
10. Hartshorne, 7-1 (NR)
Dropped out: Oklahoma Christian, 5-3 (5)
