Power Poll, Week 9

New week, new power poll.

Everything stays the same until you get to No. 7, where it gets a little crazy.

Both Harbor and Pajaro Valley moved up one spot, while St. Francis dropped to No. 10 after falling to Santa Cruz.

We still have two weeks to play, and I can assure you a lot of changes are still to come.
