No. 1 Milton cruised to a 14-6 victory over Jupiter (Fla.) on Monday. Jupiter owns a 12-4 record and had previously beaten No. 5 Centennial 9-7 two days prior to the loss to Milton. Centennial rebounded from its loss to the out-of-state Warriors with a 12-5 win over Lake Brantley (Fla.) on Tuesday and jumped one spot into this week’s top 5. North Gwinnett dropped out of the top 3 and down to No. 7 after getting handled by McCallie (Tenn.) 12-6 on Tuesday, its first loss of the season. Lambert moved up two places to No. 3 and rolled past West Forsyth 16-5 on Thursday. Walton remains at No. 4 after suffering a tough 7-6 overtime road loss to Westminster (Class A-AAAAA No. 2) on Thursday. Westminster has now tallied one-goal victories over Class AAAAAA’s Walton and Centennial this season. John’s Creek lost to Etowah in double-overtime on Saturday 14-13, but remains at the No. 10 spot. Lassiter was able to beat Etowah 13-10 on Wednesday, but John’s Creek’s 11-5 win over Lassiter earlier in the season (March 11) gives the Gladiators the edge over the Trojans in the rankings.

No. 4 GAC, No. 5 Blessed Trinity, No. 8 St. Pius and No. 9 Cambridge all enjoyed the week off. Marist enters this week’s poll at No. 7 with its 7-4 win over Holy Innocents’ and Allatoona comes in at No. 10 after topping Pope 14-12 on Friday. Pope has proven to be able to play with any team in the state, however, the Greyhounds are just 2-8 against teams with winning records this season and drop out of this week’s poll.
