Week 10 Rankings: Golden Lions beat Titans yet again, take over top spot

Clayton Taylor

St. Pius X topped Blessed Trinity on Thursday 3-2, the second victory in a span of 10 days that the Golden Lions posted over the previously top ranked Titans. St. Pius is the new Class AAA No. 1 for the first time this season and heads into the postseason with plenty of momentum and the No. 1 seed out of Area 5. Morgan County dropped two close matches to Oconee County (25-23, 28-26) and Hart County (26-24, 28-26) on Saturday and drop behind this duo as a result. Morgan County topped Hart County in a best-of-3 a month prior to this loss.


North Gwinnett moves up from No. 10 to No. 8 this week after taking the Area 6-AAAAAA title. Centennial replaces Etowah in the top 10 after the Eagles fell to Woodstock last week.


In Class AAAAA, McIntosh dominated Area 4-AAAAA competition and remains No. 1 in Class AAAAA. Sequoyah topped Pope 2-0 on Thursday and 3-2 on Saturday to win the Area 7-AAAAA title and comes in at a close No. 2. Whitewater dropped two matches to Starr’s Mill over the weekend and falls two spots to No. 5. North Springs enters the top 10 at No. 7 after finishing behind Sequoyah and Pope in the Area 7-AAAAA tournament.


In Class AAAA, the rankings remained the same as last week, but it is worth noting that Heritage-Catoosa posted an impressive sweep over Southeast Whitfield this weekend.


Coosa replaces Lamar County at No. 10 in Class AA, but they face a difficult challenge with Class AA No. 1 Westminster in the first round of the state playoffs. Previously No. 10 Lamar County fell (25-3, 25-14) to the Wildcats last Thursday.


In Class A, ELCA made big noise by topping Landmark Christian 3-0 on Saturday to earn the No. 1 seed out of Area 3-A, but remains at No. 6 heading into the playoffs where the Chargers will have to continue proving themselves. Pace Academy drops out of the top 10 after losing twice to Atlanta International last week and George Walton Academy falls out of the polls after losses to Athens Academy and Lakeview Academy. Athens Academy and Fellowship Christian are the new No. 9 and No. 10, respectively.

    Your rankings are about to be exposed for how uninformed they are. Chattahoochee WINS their area….South Forsyth finishes 3rd in that area….and you have them ranked Chatt #5 and SF #2. That makes no sense at all.

    And Sequoyah was #1 last week…but falls to #2 after winning their area tournament and beating the #4 team. Ok…that is a little confusing as well.

    As I said….round 1…Harris County…>GONE. To a #5 seed. I told you for weeks THEY HAVEN’T BEAT ANYBODY ALL YEAR. Look at schedules to determine the worth of a team….not wins and losses.

    There are no #5 seeds. . . . You do realize we have playoffs, right, and rankings mean nothing. Relax.

    Apparently I know a little more than you think. Certain areas get FIVE teams in the state tournament. Therefore there ARE #5 seeds. And Creekview is one of them.

    Vballguy. Harris County and Class A Fellowship Christian were the only upsets the entire first round out of the 60 ranked teams. I have and Harris County was a No 9 seed in my rankings and Fellowship Christian was a No. 10 seed. So they were barely even ranked. It is not like Harris County was my No. 1 team and the Coaches poll had them higher than me for most of the season including heading into the playoffs.

    Thanks to the Score Atlanta folks for taking the time to cover volleyball in Georgia. Appreciate you doing it. As you know, if you have the courage to rank teams, you can expect some folks to complain that you got it wrong — it is art, not science. The playoffs will determine our state champions.

    Vballguy — What a classy guy — sure you do not use your name because your rants would embarrass your daughter. Please use more capitalization; it helps me to understand you better. And thanks for always pointing out the mistakes you think others make, and where you think you were proved correct. Based on your comments, I believe you to be a perfect person who never errs. Congrats on that.
