Parkway has made its return to the Louisiana Sports Writers Association Class 5A football poll.

The Panthers (7-1) reclaimed their No. 8 ranking, which they held from Week 5 to Week 7, after their 37-22 defeat of Natchitoches Central last Friday.

Northwood continues to receive votes in Class 4A.

Calvary and North Caddo both remained the same in Class 2A poll after wins in Week 8. The Cavaliers (6-2) are ranked fifth after a 56-7 wipeout of D’Arbonne Woods and the Titans (6-2) are ranked eighth after defeating Green Oaks 38-0.

Here is how the LSWA polls look through the eighth week of games.
