Bruce and Calhoun City still in AP top five, but in different spots

Bruce and Calhoun City remained in the top five of the latest Associated Press Top 10 rankings for Class 2A, but not without some shuffling.

The Trojans moved up to number two in the state after a narrow 26-19 overtime win over Coffeeville. Their move had less to do with their win than it did with Calhoun City’s drop from the second spot.

The Wildcats fell to fifth in the state after losing to Water Valley 42-6 last Friday. The Blue Devils visit Bruce this week.
