Myers Park is still an emphatic No. 1 in the Magnificent Seven rankings.

The Mustangs, who are unbeaten at 5-0, have yet to be seriously tested this season and appear to be all but a lock to stay that way going into the regular season. Myers Park is the lone unbeaten in the rankings with Vance’s 17-7 loss to Mallard Creek in the I-Meck 4A opener last week.

There change at No. 3 as Ardrey Kell continued its winning streak to move behind Myers Park and Mallard Creek while Vance fell one spot to fourth.
This week’s rankings:

1. Myers Park (5-0). Same position, another week at the top thanks to a 59-0 pasting of Garinger. Up next is a road game at Rocky River.

2. Mallard Creek (4-0-1). The Mavericks weren’t especially fluid in beating No. 3 Vance, but a win is a win, especially against a rival. Up next is Lake Norman at home.

3. Ardrey Kell (4-1). It’s the right time for Knights time as AK moves up a couple spots after beating South Mecklenburg 34-13 for their fourth straight win. Next up is a SoMeck 4A clash with an improved Harding squad.

4. Vance (4-1). The Cougars took their first loss of the season against Mallard Creek, but it’s no shame. Vance has a top of the line defense, and if the offense gets on track, the Cougars will be a threat in the postseason. Next game is against Hopewell.

5. Olympic (4-2). Did anyone see the Trojans putting together this kind of season through six games? They might be the largest surprise of the season thus far. Up next: South Mecklenburg at home.

6. West Mecklenburg (3-2). Up and down the Hawks go, this time it’s up after a 34-23 win against Providence. Next is an off week, then No. 3 Ardrey Kell on Oct. 11.

7. West Charlotte (3-2). Seven-point loss to Lake Norman was a stumble, but the Lions have a chance to get it together in an I-Meck rivalry game against North Mecklenburg at home.
