The Aquinas High School football team may have had some trouble in Week 2 before rescuing a 44-22 win, but the Blugolds held their spot in state rankings released by The Associated Press on Wednesday.

Aquinas (3-0) is ranked second among Small Division schools and trails No. 1 Fond du Lac St. Mary’s Springs (3-0).

The Ledgers were also first in the initial state poll and placed second to Colby in the WIAA Division 6 state tournament last season. The Blugolds won last year’s Division 5 state championship.

Bangor (3-0) and Cashton also received votes in the Small Division, with the Cardinals moving up from 10th last week to ninth this week. The Eagles missed the top 10 by three voting points.

Aquinas hosts Altoona (2-1) in a Coulee Conference game at UW-La Crosse on Friday. Bangor resumes its Scenic Bluffs Conference schedule by hosting Necedah (0-3), and Cashton plays a non-conference game against Riverdale (0-3) in Muscoda. All of those games kick off at 7 pm on Friday, 9/9.
