Rex’s Rankings (after nine weeks)

Nine weeks of the regular season are in the books with only one week left before the playoffs begin.

Bentonville continues to roll.

So do North Little Rock, Greenwood and Camden Fairview.

There were some surprises last week, at least in the margins of victory.

I didn’t think Fort Smith Southside would beat Russellville by 42 points.

I didn’t think Bryant would beat Lake Hamilton by 35 points.

Who could have seen Cabot’s 38-12 destruction of Jonesboro coming? The Cabot radio announcers described it as the best game a Panther team has played in three years.

Malvern lost to Nashville and Stuttgart lost to Lonoke, shaking up the 4A rankings.
