Dover-Eyota/St. Charles jumps from #10 to #7 and Perham replaces Park Rapids at the #12 spot. Individually the top 5 also remain the same. Freshman Leah Jessen (Canby-Minneota) moves into the rankings at #6 following two impressive performances at Montevideo and Willmar. The Class A Boy's rankings show very little change in the team lineup. Individually, the top 5 also remain the same. Byron Schuldt (Nevis) continues to move up in the polls and is at #6 this week.

In Class A Boys, the top 5 teams are shuffled around slightly but the rest of the field remains the same.

Brendan Skime (Thief River Falls) reappears in the rankings at #11 and Justin Cook (Jackson County Central) moves in at #12. For Class A Girls, the top 5 teams hold their ground but there is some shuffling around in the remaining group, with Park Rapids moving in at #12 and Perham dropping out of the rankings. Individually, Whitney Wilgenburg (Hills Beaver Creek/Ellsworth) makes an impressive entrance into the rankings, debuting at the #4 slot, following a 2nd place finish at Milaca and an impressive win at Murray County Central last week. Marisa Shady (Esko) also moves into the rankings at #11. In Class AA, both boys and girls team rankings remian unchanged as do the girls individual rankings. For the boys, Mark Harries (Wayzata) moves in at #12 and Bryant Blahnik (Red Wing) jumps to #7.
After a big weekend of races there are a few new names showing up in the polls this week. This past weekend saw over 7,500 Minnesota junior high and high school runners competing in races Friday afternoon and Saturday, making for a great opportunity to see some of MInnesota's top runners.
There is some shifting at all levels this week, most notably Holy Family Catholic breaking into the top 5 for Girls Class A, Minnetonka dropping out of the top 5 in Girls Class AA. The boys top 5 teams shift around but remain at the top of the polls in both Class A and AA.
There has been some movement in the polls since last week's release. See the polls below.
