After three weeks of action, the Chico Panthers are still perfect and the voters rewarded them with all nine first place votes in this week’s media poll. The Panthers have downed Sac High, Lassen and Yuba City in succession.

Four of the Northern Section’s divisions have unanimous No. 1 picks, with only Division VI (8-man) being a split vote.

Chico, which is No. 1 in Division II, meets Division III’s No. 1 Sutter in a battle royale this week. Expect the winner to remain atop its division, while we will have to see if voters penalize the loser or chalk it up to a “quality” loss.

In D-VI, the top three teams – Princeton, Los Molinos and Big Valley – all grabbed first-place votes.

The Media Poll ranks the top five teams in each division based on a point system from the 9 voters. Five points are given for a first place vote, four for second place, three points for third, two for fourth and one for fifth. Voters are from Shasta County Sports, Action News Now, Chico Enterprise-Record, Paradise Post and the Redding Record Searchlight.
