Pre-Playoff Volleyball Rankings

The final week of the regular season is about to conclude and the seeding will soon be set for the upcoming postseason. A few key matchups remain on the schedule that I will note in this breakdown, but this poll will be the pre-playoff rankings. In Class 7A, Walton maintains its hold on No. 1 and the Raiders’ lone loss came earlier this month to a top-ranked Florida program. Newnan’s big victory over Class 5A No. 1 McIntosh improved the Cougars from No. 7 to No. 5 in the polls.

In Class 6A, River Ridge dropped from No. 7 to No. 10 after recent losses to Creekview and Chattahoochee. Also, No. 4 Lassiter defeated No. 5 Allatoona 3-0 on Wednesday to keep the top 5 in place. McIntosh’s loss to Newnan was not enough to move the Chiefs from the top of Class 5A. Northside-Columbus, however, fell two slots to No. 8 after its 2-1 loss to No. 9 Starr’s Mill on Wednesday.

Marist returned to No. 1 in Class 4A and replaced Heritage-Catoosa. This move came due to Marist not dropping any games within the classification and Heritage-Catoosa getting beat by No. 4 Northwest Whitfield back on Oct. 6. No. 7 Fayette County will play No. 9 Central-Carroll in a top 10 showdown Thursday night. Fayette County won 2-0 (25-16, 25-23) when the teams last faced on Sept. 22.

In Class 3A, Sonoraville fell from No. 6 to No. 7 after dropping matches to No. 4 Morgan County and Oconee County, which jumped the Phoenix for No. 6 after previously being ranked No. 8. In Class 2A/A-Private, No. 1 ranked Holy Innocents’ and No. 3 Hebron Christian will play Thursday night. In Class 2A/A-Public, No. 9 Union County scored a 3-0 win (25-16, 25-19, 25-18) over No. 10 Oglethorpe County last week to keep the standings in place.
