While Horry County football teams may have been on hold last week, they were still the beneficiary of some results from across the state.

North Myrtle Beach moved up one spot to No. 3 in the Class 4A rankings of the most recent state media poll, while Aynor moved into the Class 3A rankings for the first time this season. They are joined by Myrtle Beach and Green Sea Floyds, which remained at the top spot in the Class 4A and 1A polls, respectively.

Carolina Forest held on to its de facto No. 11 spot in Class 5A, the only team in that division’s receiving votes category.
