Derby is once again a unanimous selection for No. 1 in The Newton Kansan/Gate House Kansas AV-CTL Football Power Poll, a ranking created by sportswriters and coaches within the conference.

If they can keep that spot will be determined in the final two weeks of the season, as they have two tests remaining. This week the Panthers (4-0, 6-0) will play host to No. 8 Campus (2-2, 4-3) before closing off the regular season on the road at No. 2 Maize (4-0, 6-0).

The Maize defense has given up just one touchdown this season. This week the Eagles will host No. 23 Salina South (0-4, 0-6).

Remaining undefeated teams in the conference include McPherson in Division three and Andale in division four. This week McPherson will take on winless Rose Hill while Andale takes on Clearwater (1-2, 4-2)
