In Class AAAAAAA, nothing shifted in the rankings since last week as 10-time state champion Walton leads the field entering Area Tournaments.

Harrison held off No. 5 Dunwoody 3-1 last Thursday to remain at No. 2 in Class AAAAAA, but a River Ridge win over Sequoyah did shift the standings as the Chiefs slid to No. 10.

Class AAAA defending champion Buford continues its wire-to-wire No. 1 ranking in Class AAAAA as 31-4 Whitewater hangs tight at No. 2. McIntosh was able to beat Whitewater 2-1 last week, but a 20-6 record wasn’t enough to edge the Wildcats just yet in the poll. Flowery Branch dropped out of the top 10 after losing its final five matches of the season and Riverwood used a big win over Decatur to debut at No. 9.

Class AAAA No. 1 Blessed Trinity held off Columbus 2-1 in the Serve for the Cure Finals and solidifies its top-ranked status. Woodward Academy, which has wins over Columbus and St. Pius comes in at No. 2. No. 3 St. Pius took 2-of-3 against No. 4 Marist this season and Columbus rounds out the top 5 at 38-11. Northwest Whitfield replaced Jefferson in the poll and debuts at No. 9 after scoring a (25-22, 25-14) sweep over No. 10 Ridgeland.

In Class AAA, Redan suffered its first loss of the season in a 2-0 sweep to No. 1 Westminster. The 25-12, 25-5 victory was enough to drop the Raiders to No. 9. North Hall scored back-to-back sweeps over rival East Hall this week and come in at No. 6.

Harlem jumped to No. 4 in Class AA and Mt. Pisgah made a strong push to No. 2 in Class A after closing a 27-4 regular season record with sweeps over Holy Innocents’ and Lovett.
