6A Notebook 10/2: Two unbeatens remain

#1 Trinity and #7 Simon Kenton are the only two undefeated in the Commonwealth’s largest football class. In 6A Poll threads for ranked teams last week, the BluegrassPreps voters were a perfect 5 for 5. The choices were #1 Trinity over #2 St. Xavier; #4 Male over #5 Pleasure Ridge Park; #8 Butler over #9 Manual; Cathedral (IN) over #7 Ryle; Campbell County over Mt. Healthy (OH). This brings the season total to 41 of 46 for 89.1%.

The feature games this week include #4 St. Xavier at #9 Manual; #3 Scott County vs. #10 Douglass; #5 Pleasure Ridge Park at #6 Butler in a rare Thursday night matchup (St. James Art Fair begins Friday). Please see game threads with polls for more details.
