Three Whatcom County football teams moved up in the latest Associated Press Washington Football Prep Poll released Wednesday, Sept. 21, while Meridian fell out of the Class 1A poll.

Squalicum and Ferndale rose one place each in the Class 3A poll to Nos. 3 and 4, respectively. The Storm (3-0, 1-0 Wesco North) and Ferndale (3-0, 0-0) trail only unanimous No. 1 Eastside Catholic and No. 2 O’Dea. Both teams hit the road for Wesco North games Friday, Sept. 23, with Squalicum playing at Stanwood and Ferndale at Arlington.

Lynden moved up two spots to No. 6 in the Class 2A poll, where Turnwater is top-ranked. The Lions (2-1, 1-0 2A NWC) travel to face Sedro-Woolley, which was ranked No. 5. Burlington-Edison at No. 9 gives the 2A NWC three teams in the top 10.

Mount Baker stayed at No. 3 in the Class 1A poll behind unanimous No. 1 Royal and No. 2 Connell. Meridian fell from the 10th spot in the 1A poll after dropping its second game of the season at Cascade Christian on Saturday, Sept. 17. The Mountaineers (3-0) and Trojans (1-2) open 1A NWC play Friday when they host Nooksack Valley and Lynden Christian, respectively.

After splitting the Class 1B first-place votes with Almira-Coulee-Hartline last week, Lummi received all nine votes cast this week to maintain the No. 1 spot in the poll for the fourth straight week. The Blackhawks (3-0) play two games in three days this week, as they travel to Muckleshoot on Thursday, Sept. 22, before hosting Orcas Island on Saturday, Sept. 24.
