PREP POLL: Hattiesburg alone in Top 10

By STAFF REPORTS,

Hattiesburg is now the lone area team in the AP Top 10, as it stays in the No. 5 slot, and Oak Grove, which was No. 8 last week, dropped out after its loss to Petal. The Warriors are receiving votes, though.

Lumberton remains at No. 3 in the 1A poll, and PCS is the leading vote-getting not in the Private School Top 5.
