The undefeated Marshall football team climbed to fifth in the Small Division of The Associated Press high school football poll, which was released Tuesday.

Marshall and Markesan are scheduled to meet for the Eastern Suburban Conference title Friday night.

While most WIAA football programs have opted to play a shortened fall schedule due to COVID-19, most Madison-area high schools — including the entire Big Eight Conference and every Rock Valley Conference school except Madison Edgewood — have committed to an alternative spring season, leaving their stadiums eerily empty this fall.

This week features the final regular-season games. 

Eau Claire Regis stayed No. 1.

In the Large Division, Sun Prairie and Kimberly were tied for second, behind No. 1 Franklin.

Waunakee remained fourth and DeForest was sixth.

Mount Horeb/Barneveld and Middleton were among teams also receiving votes.

In the Medium Division, Madison Edgewood was ranked seventh and Monroe was tied for eighth with Stratford.

Edgewood meets Monroe on Friday at Breese Stevens Field with the Rock Valley Conference crown on the line.

Waukesha Catholic Memorial remained No. 1 in the Medium Division.

Area teams Columbus and Lodi were among teams also receiving votes, while, from the region, Wisconsin Dells also received votes.
