Sullivan North and Elizabethton swapped places, but there was little other movement when The Associated Press’ Tennessee high school football polls came out Monday.

The Cyclones (7-2) leapfrogged the Golden Raiders (8-1) to No. 7 in the Class 3A rankings, with North dropping to eighth. Both teams were coming off wins, Elizabethton 34-7 over Johnson County and North 55-19 over Happy Valley.

Daniel Boone (6-2) moved up from eighth to seventh in the 5A poll after the team that was ahead of the Trailblazers, Clarksville NE (5-3), lost 13-9 to Paducah Tilghman, Ky.

In 6A, unbeatens Dobyns-Bennett (8-0) and Science Hill (8-0) held firm at No. 4 and No. 6, respectively.

Across the border in Virginia, Clintwood (6-1) stayed at No. 2 in The AP’s Virginia Group A rankings  and John Battle (8-0) held at No. 4.
