A dozen teams from the Cedar Valley and northeast Iowa are ranked in the third high school football poll of the season released by the Associated Press Tuesday afternoon. None of the teams, however, are positioned any higher than fifth in their respective classes.

The highest rated squads from the area are West Delaware (Class 3A), Waukon (Class 2A), Dike-New Hartford (Class 1A) and North Tama (Class A), which are all ranked at No. 5. Independence is rated at No. 6 in the 3A survey, while Denver kept its No. 8 position in the 1A poll.

Cedar Falls is ranked at No. 7 in Class 5A. The 4A poll has Waverly-Shell Rock listed at No. 6, which is a three-spot drop from last week.

Three area teams are ranked among the best in Class A. Featured in the survey behind North Tama are Grundy Center at No. 6 and North Butler at No. 9.

In the 8-player class, Janesville and Gladbrook-Reinbeck are both undefeated at the midway point of the season. Janesville is ranked at No. 7 and the Rebels debuted at No. 9.
