AUGUST 29, 2018 BY SCORE-EDITOR

Walton’s recent performances on the court have solidified their position at the top of class AAAAAAA. Their recent sweeps over sixth-ranked South Forsyth, class AAAA second-ranked St. Pius X and Roswell extended their streak of not giving up a single set to 12 games. Lassiter has seen the biggest jump in the rankings, advancing from the nine spot up to the second-ranked team. Their only loss of the season, a 3-1 set, was dealt to them by Harrison earlier in the month. Since then, the Trojans haven’t given up a single set while taking out teams such as Etowah and South Forsyth. The North Gwinnett Bulldogs may have three losses on the season, but they all came while playing against top-ten ranked teams in the state. Out of these losses, Blessed Trinity was the only team to sweep the Bulldogs, while Lassiter and Chamblee won with scores of 2-1. North Gwinnett has shown they can play with the top dogs, taking out St. Pius X earlier in August. They’ve simply rolled over all other competition and will continue to turn heads during their games leading up to a tough matchup against Hebron Christian.

Alpharetta snuck past previous top-ranked Harrison to claim the number one spot atop class AAAAAA following a series of sound victories, one of which was against Harrison. From unranked to third-ranked, Apalachee has strung together an impressive season with only one loss given to them by Mill Creek. Their upcoming game against Habersham Central will give them an opportunity to claim a big win and defend their spot in the top three of class AAAAAA. Habersham Central hasn’t seen the toughest of schedules, but they’re constant winning can’t go unwarranted.

As the second-ranked team in the state, it’s no surprise to find McIntosh sitting at the top of class AAAAA. Three of their last four victories came against Calvary Christian, Heritage-Newnan and East Coweta who are all ranked among the top 50 in the state. Their next tough matchup will be against Columbus, who have climbed up the ladder in class AAAA. Chamblee sits just behind McIntosh at the number two spot. Their perfect 17-0 record could be enough to warrant a top-ranked position, depending on how McIntosh proceeds with its upcoming schedule. While unable to defeat Chamblee, the Decatur Bulldogs have found success in all other matchups including a sound victory over Union Grove. They’ll be put to the test during their upcoming game against Pope, who have previously taken out top notch teams such as Harrison and Fellowship Christian.

While Marist sat atop of class AAAA to start the season, they were quickly replaced by their 2017 GHSA championship finals opponent Blessed Trinity. Strong wins over North Gwinnett and Harrison to start the season showed the direction this squad was headed, and their recent wins over Pope and Hebron Christian support their number one spot. Right behind them at the number two spot is St. Pius X, who also have a slew of wins to be proud of. Their only losses on the season came from Walton, North Gwinnett and Harrison who all sit in the top five of their respective classes. Defending champions Marist have struggled to replicate their 2017 championship season. Their recent victory over Etowah is a step in the right direction, but the duo of Blessed Trinity and Newnan may serve them two more losses in their near future.

Coming into the 2018 season as the defending champs of class AAA, Pace Academy has shown they can repeat their 2017 season. Meanwhile, Fannin County has come out of nowhere to shake things up in class AAA. Their first defining game came against Calhoun, who had been red hot all season. The Rebels came up big with the upset and served Calhoun its first loss of the season. Calhoun later in the season got its revenge on the Rebels by sweeping them 2-0, but Fannin County can expect to bounce back during its upcoming games against Lumpkin County and Pickens. Starting off the year at the three spot, Greater Atlanta Christian has fallen to the seventh-ranked team in class AAA. However, three of their five losses have come from top-twenty teams in the state. They’ll need to step up to the plate as they approach tough matchups against Westminster and Alpharetta that could make or break their season.

Coosa suffered a 2-0 loss to East Hamilton yesterday, but the 2017 defending champs still have carved a path to the number one spot in class AA/A-Public. Their matchup against LaFayette will hopefully get the Eagles back on the winning side of the court. Armuchee’s start to the season quickly got the team placed out of the top three spots in class AA/A-Public. While the easier matchups have resulted with an Indian victory, their tougher matchup games haven fallen the other way this season. Their upcoming matchups against Rome and Coosa will give them a chance to claim a much-needed big win.

Mt. Paran Christian wasted no time at all to advance as the top-ranked team in class A-Private after starting out the season at the number two spot. Yesterday’s matchup against North Cobb Christian could have gone either way, but the Eagles stood strong and kept their undefeated season alive winning with a score of 3-2. Previously outside of the top ten, North Cobb Christian has shown they deserve a spot in the top five after a series of big wins against Northside-Columbus, Columbus and Sequoyah. While the loss against Mt. Paran Christian is a missed opportunity to overthrow the top dogs, tomorrow the Eagles will get another chance to take down another powerhouse in Pace Academy.
