Cherokee (17-2) continues its quiet ascension towards the top of the Class AAAAAA rankings. The Warriors are now No. 2 and have won 12-straight games heading into the home stretch of the season. Cherokee finishes Region 5 play 8-0. Taylor Cates finished 3-of-4 with 4 RBIs in a 7-0 victory over Etowah. Kindell Reaves pitched a complete-game shutout and allowed just two hits while striking out six Eagles. No. 7 Brookwood (16-6) re-enters the poll for the first time since dropping out in Week 3. The Broncos were ranked as high as No. 4 before falling out early in the season. They have won six-straight games highlighted by an 8-0 win over Class AAAA’s No. 6 Buford (16-6). East Coweta (18-2) slips to No. 4 after a 7-3 loss to West Laurens.

The top three in Class AAAAA remain the same, headlined by No. 1 Cambridge (12-0) who has now tossed 11 shutouts. No. 2 Chapel Hill (19-2) picked up a quality 3-1 win over Allatoona on the road last Thursday. Ashley Morgan continues to get the job done on the mound and at the plate, while Savannah Sikes and Morehead State-commit Bella Caricari provide pop offensively. Caricari went 3-for-3 with a double against Allatoona while Morgan cracked a 2-run homer in the sixth to take the lead and allowed just three hits and one run in her seven innings of work.

No. 4 Woodland-Stockbridge (18-4) swaps places with now No. 5 Union Grove (15-5) and is riding a seven-game winning streak. Over the seven game stretch, the Wolfpack have picked up key wins over Union Grove, Class AA No. 2 Vidalia (20-3), West Laurens (14-6), Northside-Columbus (14-9) and No. 10 Loganville (17-8). No. 7 Houston County (16-4) has won 11-straight. Both Cross Creek (15-7) and Creekview (12-8) drop out of the polls after holding the No. 9 and No. 10 spots respectively. Cross Creek has dropped four-straight while the Grizzlies have fallen three times in a row.

In Class AAAA, Heritage-Catoosa (19-2) holds fast at No. 1. Buford has tumbled four spots to No. 6 after losses to Brookwood 8-0, Ridgeland 3-2 and Mill Creek 6-5. No. 2 Gilmer (19-4) creeps up to second in the rankings and gives Region 7 the classification’s top two teams. No. 3 Walnut Grove (18-3) has big tests looming in the form of AAAAA No. 3 Greenbrier (16-3) on the road on Wednesday and Thursday at AAAAA No. 10 Loganville.

Carrollton (14-5) finally re-enters the polls at No. 9. The Trojans have scored wins over No. 5 Thomas County Central (19-4) 10-1 and have beaten region rival No. 10 Whitewater (18-6) twice this year including last Tuesday, 5-3.

Calhoun remains the top dog in Class AAA and has now won 16-straight games, running the Yellowjackets’ record up to 20-1. Jackson County (15-8) tumbles all the way out of the rankings after losing 5-of-6 games. The Panthers were ranked No. 4 last week before their losing streak. No. 5 Dodge County (18-5) slips two spots after losses to Bleckley County, AAAAAA No. 6 Dacula (16-3) and AAAAAA No. 4 East Coweta.

Gordon Lee (20-1) takes over the top spot in Class AA and has now outscored region opponents 90-to-1. Since a 4-3 loss to Calhoun, the Trojans have marched their way to 15-straight victories including wins over A-Public No. 5 Georgia Military (12-4), AAAAAA No. 8 Archer (14-5), Lassiter (14-6) and Harris County (13-8). After starting 18-0, Vidalia drops to No. 2 and has lost three of its last five games. The Indians have fallen to Long County 1-0, Woodland-Stockbridge 4-0 and Lanier 3-1.

Class A-Private also has crowned a new No. 1 with Brookstone (13-1) taking over after four-straight No. 4 Prince Avenue (10-6) losses. Athens Christian, East Coweta, Jones County and Grayson all handed the Wolverines defeats.  In A-Public, Baconton Charter (18-1) remains atop the poll. No. 10 Emanuel County Institute makes an appearance in the rankings thanks to eight-straight wins and a 14-4 record. The Bulldogs have two big games remaining as they battle No. 7 Johnson County (16-5) on Tuesday and No. 9 Treutlen (16-6) next Tuesday.

    In AAAAA idk if Alexander (lost 5 of last 9 games)should be ranked above a team like Richmond Hill whose played a solid schedule, has only 6 losses, and beaten Greenbrier on the road. I’d have the 8-10 in AAAAA be, Loganville, Richmond Hill, then Dunwoody. Cambridge finally played a good team and Woodstock gave them a loss 5-2. I’d drop them down some as well. After Greenbrier beat GMC a second time and Walnut Grove 4-0 in back to back games last week, they’ve earned to be back on top of the standings. They’ve had 4 wins against current Top 10 teams in their classes and 3 other wins against teams that were ranked at the time of the game. Chapel Hill is a very good team but has a weaker strength of schedule and their best win to date is Heritage Conyers 4-2. Although they do have East Coweta & Calhoun coming up this week and have a chance to get a cpl good wins to build their case to be in the top spot.
