    The final Associated Press polls were released on Monday.

    The Associated Press voters have made their final rankings after 10 weeks of play, and there are a few new faces finding themselves in the poll heading into the postseason, when polls cease to exist.

    In Class 5A, Cedar Hill and Dallas Skyline held the top two spots they've been in most of the season, as Cedar Hill received all 25 of the first-place votes. The other Metroplex teams in the 5A poll are Allen (No. 5) and Southlake Carroll (No. 8). Euless Trinity is receiving votes.

    In Class 4A, there were several changes after a few big games last week, most notably Denton Ryan's 50-29 win over previously No. 2 Denton Guyer on Thursday night. The win gave Ryan an identical 9-1 record to Guyer, and Guyer fell to No. 8, one spot behind crosstown foe Ryan (No. 7).

    Aledo climbed three spots to No. 6 and Highland Park climbed two spots to No. 4. Waxahachie climbed a spot to No. 3 behind Longview and No. 1 Lake Travis, which now has all 25 first-place nods.

    Denison checked in at No. 9 after claiming the Ax over Sherman. Birdville and Ryan's and Guyer's district mates Lake Dallas are receiving votes, and those two squads will meet in one of the best first-round playoff matchups on Friday night in Saginaw.

    In Class 3A, Argyle and Prosper stood pat at Nos. 5 and 8, respectively, as Argyle got company at No. 5 from Sealy, which moved from No. 6 to a tie for fifth. In Class 2A, Pilot Point moved up a spot to No. 6 after a win over previously unbeaten Aubrey on Friday night.
