Eagles Move Up 3 Spots in Grid Poll

Barrington High moves back up in the football poll to No. 6; La Salle still ranked No. 1.

La Salle is still ranked No. 1 in the state, but Hendricken is gaining, and Cranston East also remains in the hunt for the top ranking in the fourth week of the Rhode Island High School Football Media Poll.

Barrington High School moved up three spots in the poll to No. 6 in Rhode Island after a 35-15 win over East Providences last Saturday. The Eagles take on Bishop Feehan of Attleboro tonight at 7 in a non-division clash at Victory Field.

The top four of the poll remain unchanged, as La Salle, Hendricken, Cranston East and Portsmouth all won their games. The Johnston Panthers round out the top five, thanks to a 48-0 drubbing of Toll Gate.

Shea (No. 15) and Coventry (No. 20) are new to the poll this week. Shea had an impressive win against No. 12 West Warwick, and Coventry beat Warwick Vets 40-8.
