Rankings: Allen, Highland Park remain on top
October, 23, 2011

What we got right: Allen and Flower Mound Marcus are the real deal. Allen remains at No. 1 in the 5A poll, despite a narrow win over a previously undefeated Flower Mound Marcus. Cedar Hill moves up a spot after a win over a tough Mansfield team, which stays in the poll at No. 10 after the loss. Highland Park remains at the top of the 4A poll, despite Denton Ryan narrowly winning the people's choice 42 percent to 38 percent in last week's Sports Nation poll.
What we got wrong: Wylie East's amazing run has flown under the radar all season, but now the Raiders make their first appearance in the 4A poll. Arlington Martin has had a interesting ride through District 4-5A but made it back into the 5A poll at No. 8 this week.
Say hello to: 5A -- Arlington Martin; 4A -- Wylie East
Say goodbye to: 5A -- Garland; 4A -- Dallas South Oak Cliff
Watch out for: 5A -- Mansfield Timberview, Plano East; 4A -- Trophy Club Byron Nelson, Little Elm
