Zanesville and Tri-Valley both had huge wins on Friday night and it reflected in the eyes of the Associated Press. Zanesville entered their week four contest with A.P. Division V number two Ursuline ranked seventh, but after their come-from-behind victory, they have jumped all the way to number four in Division II.

The Blue Devils received one first place vote after knocking off the Irish and will go into their game with 3-1 Jonathan Alder with an unbeaten record. Zanesville now knows that they will no longer be the hunter in future games, but the hunted.

For Tri-Valley, they also had to come-from-behind at home to hand Dover their second loss of the season, which also catapulted them in the Division II rankings as well. The Scotties went from eighth all the way up to number six in the newest polls and also earned one first place vote. The Dawgs return to action Friday night when they travel to 2-2 Crooksville.

The only other team in the polls this week was West Holmes, who are number ten in Division III.
