Six weeks to go in the high school regular season.

Here’s what we have learned:

– Cabot appears to be really good. The 48-32 victory over North Little Rock was impressive. The Panthers have started 4-0 and soared to No. 3 in our overall rankings. It looks like Cabot will be the team out of central Arkansas best able to challenge the northwest Arkansas powers in the Class 7A playoffs.

– No one in Class 6A can contend with Greenwood. If Fayetteville loses and Greenwood keeps winning, we’ll move Greenwood to No. 1 overall. That’s pretty amazing when you consider that Greenwood was competing in Class 5A just a couple of seasons ago.

– We continue to have Pulaski Academy at No. 1 and Camden Fairview at No. 2 in Class 5A, but it’s hard to say which is the best team. They seem to be on a collision course for the playoffs.

– Arkadelphia survived at home against Nashville, but Ashdown and Malvern could give the Badgers problems. They play in what is without a doubt the toughest conference in Class 4A.

– All of the top five teams in Class 3A are capable of winning a state championship if they get hot at the right time.

– The same goes for Class 2A: All of the top five teams are capable of winning a state title.
