The Airline Vikings have cracked the Louisiana Sports Writers Association Class 5A poll.

The Vikings debuted at No. 7 in the latest weekly poll released Tuesday. The Vikings (5-1) handed Haughton its first loss 22-19 last Friday.

Airline visits Parkway (4-2) in another Bossier Parish matchup Friday night. 

Haughton (5-1) dropped from No. 6 to No. 10. The Bucs host Southwood (0-6) Friday night.

Last week, the No. 6 through No. 10 teams in the 5A poll all lost. Two of those, then No. 7 Alexandria and No. 8 East Ascension, lost to higher ranked teams. Alexandria dropped to No. 8 and East Ascension fell out of the top 10.

Despite suffering its first loss to North Webster 35-28, Bossier (5-1) again received votes in the Class 3A poll.

Bossier had 14 points, which put the Bearkats at No. 12 overall. Bossier visits Loyola College Prep (5-1) Friday.
