MaxPreps has updated their state polls and national poll. Here are the top teams
Iowa--Ballard. They don't have the loss to Cedar Rapids Washington on their results however.
Michigan---Detroit Community
Minnesota---Minneapolis South. I have seen 8 of their top 10 teams, 15 of the top 25. That will change after this week with two more teams to be seen.
North Dakota---Bismarck
South Dakota---Sioux Falls Washington

In the national rankings
Mpls South is now #10 in the country.
Centennial is #15
Detroit Community is #23
Grosse Pointe North, MI is #24.
Ballard is #39
Linn-Mar, IA is #49
Sioux City North is #52
St. Paul Central is #63
Eastview is #65
East Lansing, MI is #81
So Minnesota has 4 teams in this top 10, Michigan 3, Iowa 3
