POWERADE Michigan Rankings: Week 8
By By Christopher Parish
After games ending Saturday, Oct. 15
This past weekend featured a battle between last year's state champs; Division 1 power Lake Orion and Division 2 juggernaut Harrison. But the D-2 Hawks, ranked No. 9 nationally in the POWERADE FAB 50, prevailed in a 28-7 victory to hold on to the top spot in our state ranks as well. But that wasn't the only big game of the weekend. St. Mary's Prep, which has suffered only one loss to a top Ohio school, toppled previous No. 2 Detroit Catholic Central in just one of many games that shook up the rankings this week.
1. Harrison — defeated Lake Orion, 28-7 (last week: No. 1)
2. Plymouth — defeated Northville, 24-20 (last week: No. 3)
3. Grand Rapids Christian — defeated Creston, 50-0 (last week: No. 4)
