Seven-time defending Class 4A champ Dowling Catholic remains a solid No. 1 in the High School Football America Iowa Top 10 after shutting-out No. 2 Valley 22-0. Despite the string of championships, many considered Valley the favorite coming into the game. The loss drops Valley from No. 2 to No. 3 in the latest rankings.

Southeast Polk, which started the season just outside of the Top 10, moves into the No. 2 spot this week after shutting-out preseason-ranked Ankeny Centennial 29-0. The Rams, who play Cedar Rapids Jefferson this week, will face Valley on September 18.

Waukee re-enters the poll at No. 8 after beating former No. 3 Ankeny 21-17, dropping the Hawks to No. 9 this week.

New to the statewide rankings this week is Cedar Rapids’ Washington High at No. 7. The Warriors have opened with impressive wins over ranked teams. After knocking-off Preseason No. 5 Bettendorf in Week 1, Washington beat No. 4 Kennedy 28-21 last weekend.
