Marian Central falls to No. 10 in Class 5A; Harvard missed 4A top 10

Marian Central dropped four spots to No. 10 in Class 5A after its first loss of the football season.

The Associated Press released its polls on Tuesday and Marian, which had been No. 6 since before the season, fell after its 28-10 loss to Marmion, a game that also propelled Marmion to No. 9 in 6A.

Harvard remained as the second team just out of the top 10 in Class 4A with 11 votes. The Hornets (4-0) are the lone unbeaten team in the Northwest Herald area.

Fox Valley Conference member Grayslake North (4-0) moved up one spot in 6A to No. 8.
