The Monarchs (15-0) wrapped up their season last week with a state championship win. There was some movement in the rankings, however, due to the Texas state championship and the GEICO State Champions Bowl Series in Phoenix.

Then-No. 11 St. Frances Academy (Baltimore) and then-No. 22 Chandler, Ariz., got considerable bumps because of impressive wins in the GEICO event.

SFA improved to 13-0 and climbed seven spots to No. 4 as quarterback Jalon Jones ran for two two and threw a touchdown pass in a 41-3 win Saturday vs. then-No 8 Bingham (South Jordan, Utah).

Chandler (13-2) rose eight spots to No. 7 as quarterback Jacob Conover threw for 341 yards and five touchdowns in a 55-20 win Saturday vs. Miami Northwestern (Miami).
