After a 49-28 blowout of 6A Jonesboro, the Conway Wampus Cats have moved up into a sixth-place tie and fourth place in the 7A top 5.

Conway previously dropped from fifth in the overall poll, but dropped down to eighth after a 47-21 loss to No. 2 Bentonville.

But, with a common opponent between Cabot and Conway in Jonesboro, it seems voters have given a slight edge to the Wampus Cats in the 7A top 5 and a tie with Cabot in the overall poll.

Both Cabot and Conway went into Jonesboro and left with wins, but Cabot only had a four-point win over the Hurricane, while the Wampus Cats left with a 21-point win.

Conway and Cabot face off Oct. 9 in Cabot, while Conway plays Little Rock Southwest on the road Friday.
