The Associated Press Minnesota state high school football rankings are out for this week, and Southeast Minnesota was again well-represented in the rankings.

Blooming Prarie was the lone school in the area to be ranked #1, but a total of 13 teams cracked the Top 10 in their respective class, and another three received votes in the Top 10 in this week's poll. The polls are voted upon by a statewide panel of prep sports writers.

Spring Grove and Lanesboro remain ranked, but Spring Grove fell to #4 and Lanesboro from tied at 4th down to #5. LeRoy-Ostrander is a new team that received votes in the poll. The Cardinals have outscored their two opponents 95-34 this season.

There is no doubt that Section 1 9-MAN is loaded again this year with teams like Spring Grove, Lanesboro, LeRoy-Ostrander and Grand Meadow. Who ever wins this section will have earned it!
