The Clark County football team is on the rise. The Indians (6-0) moved up two sports to No. 3 in Class 2 this week's Missouri rankings. Clark County will play at Centralia, ranked No. 5 in Class 3, on Friday.

Hannibal (6-0) also moved up, climbing one spot to No. 5 in Class 4. South Shelby (3-3) was among those receiving votes in Class 1 but wasn't in the top 10.

In Illinois, Central-Southeastern (6-0) and Illini West (5-1) remained steady at Nos. 5 and 7, respectively, in Class 2A. Quincy Notre Dame (4-2) is among those receiving votes in Class 4A.

In Case You Missed It

Therapy dog knows just what Baldwin students need
Cooper heads down the hallway in Baldwin West for another day of school. He's focused. He's friendly. He's furry. Cooper, a golden doodle, is teacher Erin Armbruster's trained therapy dog, and his pawprints reach beyond just her classroom. "He helps out the students. He's a very good dog," fifth-grader Myles Cain said.
