Eastern Idaho’s No. 1 source for prep sports

Shelley moves up to No. 2 in 3A ranks of latest media poll

The Shelley High School football team’s second consecutive win helped the Russets move up in this week’s Idaho high school football state media poll released Tuesday.

The Russets, who defeated 4A Canyon Ridge 38-7 last Friday, moved up to No. 2 in the 3A ranks. Shelley (2-1) was ranked No. 3 last week.

South Fremont (2-1) also joined the top-five ranks for the first time this season, moving to No. 5 in 3A following back-to-back weeks of wins over 2A teams West Jefferson and Bear Lake. Sugar-Salem (2-1) was among 3A teams receiving votes.

West Jefferson (2-1) returned to the top-five of 2A after a week’s hiatus, taking the No. 5 spot following last week’s 63-47 win over 3A Teton. North Fremont (2-1), ranked No. 3 last week, fell to No. 4 after a 41-20 loss to No. 2 Aberdeen. Firth and Ririe were among 2A teams receiving votes this week.

Madison (2-1), which lost 31-14 to Sky View, Utah, last Friday, dropped out of the top five of the 5A poll and did not receive any votes this week. Rigby (3-0) and Hillcrest (3-0) were among 5A teams receiving votes. In 1A Division II, Butte County (2-1) was among teams receiving votes.
