McGEE: No. 1 ranked ‘Hawks have fi­nal tune-up

The Times (Northeast Benton County) - - SPORTS/SCHOOL -

great to see the Pea Ridge name atop the polling.

Of course, get­ting that No. 1 rank comes with it a set of tar­gets that ev­ery op­po­nent from here on out will be shoot­ing for. Any team play­ing the No. 1 team in the state will be hop­ing to make a state­ment by tak­ing down that team. The ’Hawks will have to be on their toes and ready to roll each and ev­ery week.

Prairie Grove’s two lop­sided wins in their sea­son thus far has el­e­vated them to the No. 2 po­si­tion with War­ren slid­ing down some more. Shiloh lost to a good Lit­tle Rock Chris­tian 5A team and that some­how moved them up a bit to No. 7. The other five teams in the 4A-1 have slipped into the lower tier of the state’s 4A teams.
