After a week of play in the New Year, we have some changes from the first poll of the season.

DeWitt's victory over Haslett last week and East Lansing's subsequent victory over DeWitt last week leaves us five area teams that are undefeated at this point (Lansing Catholic, Holt, Portland, Portland St. Patrick, and Ovid-Elsie).

We also have only four one-loss teams at this point of the season as well (DeWitt, Haslett, Leslie, and Fowler).

There are a handful of big games this week that you need to be aware of.  Tuesday's schedule features East Lansing at Holt for the CAAC Blue lead and Olivet is at Leslie in a battle of two of the three unbeaten teams in conference play in the GLAC.  Later on in the week, Stockbridge visits Olivet on Friday and defending Division 2 state champ Portland visits 9-0 Lansing Catholic on Friday night.

So, here's a look at the updated poll:
