There was minimal shake up in the latest Sun Herald Top 10 polls with both Pascagoula's boys and St. Martin's girls continuing to roll.

The No. 1 Panthers (20-4) haven't lost in 2016. Last week, 'Goula posted posted a 2-0 week with a 43-36 win over No. 2 Gulfport (16-10) and a 31-19 victory over Gautier.

No. 3 St. Martin (19-8) strung together two wins over Hattiesburg and West Harrison to remain in the top three.

No. 4 Biloxi (18-8) went 2-1 on the week with wins over Long Beach and No. 7 Harrison Central (14-13).

The week's biggest mover was No. 6 George County (13-5), up four spots after a 2-0 week with wins over Ocean Springs and the Indians.

No. 5 Pass Christian climbed two spots after an offensive week that saw the Pirates beat Hancock (14-12), which is tied with HCHS, 95-80, and Stone 87-42.

Bay (17-6) remained at No. 9 after beating East Central and D'Iberville (17-10) snapped a seven-game skid with a 59-55 win over Vancleave to remain at No. 10.

Girls

Outside of a three-point loss to Murrah in November and a 60-57 decision to Bay in December, No. 1 St. Martin's girls (24-2) have remained untouched. Last week they had two close calls but ended up squeaking out a 51-51 win over No. 2 West Harrison (19-2) after a 63-60 win over Hattiesburg.

With the regular season in the books, coach Gina Bell believes her team has positioned itself to make a post-season run.

"I think so. We've gotten better and each player has improved on what they needed to fix," she said Friday. "Each girl has improved. I think we're ready."

No. 3 Harrison Central (17-9) split the week to remain in the same spot. After falling to the Lady 'Canes, HCHS rebounded with a convincing win over Biloxi.

Spots 4-6 remained the same with Bay (17-6), Pascagoula (20-6), Gulfport (16-10) and Ocean Springs (17-6) all staying deadlocked.

St. Patrick's girls jumped two spots to No. 8 with a 54-31 win over West Marion. No. 9 Picayune (16-6) and No. 10 East Central (13-11) both slipped one spot.
