A week that saw five of the top six teams in Class B each suffer a setback propelled unbeaten Bridgewater-Emery to the top of the Class B volleyball poll, as selected by South Dakota media members.

The Huskies (12-0) drew nine of 13 first place votes. Second place Warner (13-2) and third place Wolsey-Wessington (8-1), last week’s number one, each received two first place votes. Aberdeen Christian (10-1), which handed Wolsey-Wessington its first loss, moved from unranked to fourth. Northwestern (13-3) slipped to third.

The top three teams in Class A and the top two teams in Class AA remained the same. O’Gorman (6-0) remained a unanimous pick in Class AA, while Sioux Falls Christian (10-0) remained a unanimous pick in Class A.

Dakota Valley remained second in Class A.
