The years-long belief that Region VI is the best region in all of Class 4A hasn't hit a snag yet.

On Tuesday, four teams from the division found themselves in the latest S.C. Prep Football Media Polls. Myrtle Beach (No. 3), North Myrtle Beach (No. 6), South Florence (No. 8) and West Florence (No. 10) all appeared in the rankings. South Florence will head to No. 4 South Pointe on Friday, while the other three will be favored to win their region openers, meaning a wholesale improvement could be on tap for next week.

Joining Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach from the Horry County contingent was Aynor, which remained at No. 7 in Class 3A. Carolina Forest, which was receiving votes last week, dropped out of the conversation after a lopsided loss at Sumter last week.
