Week 8 Softball Rankings

There were few changes in the polls as teams begin their region runs. In the state’s highest classification, the top-5 stayed the same from last week with Mill Creek leading following its 5-4 victory over No. 2 North Gwinnett on Thursday. Third-ranked East Coweta, Grayson and Lowndes lead a determined pack behind the front-runners.

In Class AAAAAA, a new No. 1 takes over as Houston County climbs from third to the top. West Laurens took top-ranked Houston County to eight innings on Wednesday before the No. 1 Bears took the victory. Former No. 1 Coffee settled to fourth. Allatoona is second this week with Lee County at third and Pope rounding out the top-5 at fifth.

Bainbridge still holds the top-spot in Class AAAA with Locust Grove and Jones County chasing before any changes are apparent. This week, South Effingham moved from fifth to fourth following Starr’s Mill’s slide from fourth to sixth. Harris County moved from sixth to fifth this week.

A slight shuffle in Class AAAA sent Marist down to sixth from third which made room for Madison County, formerly sixth, to climb to third. Previous No. 4 Heritage-Ringgold fell to No. 8 this week. Northside-Columbus, previous fifth, climbed to fourth third week with LaFayette jumping to fifth from No. 8

Sonoraville leads Class AAA again with Jefferson taking the No. 2 spot from Calhoun this week. The Yellow Jackets fall to third. Brantley County and Franklin County round out the top-5 this week. Franklin County climbed up from No. 8 last week.

Rockmart and Monticello are getting comfortable and are at the top-spots of Class AA again this week. Third-ranked Dodge County, up from fourth last week, switched with Banks County. Heard County is fifth again this week.

Gordon Lee leads Class A-Public and a new No. 2, Schley County, enters the mix this week. Third-ranked Marion County was fourth last week. Fourth-ranked Commerce moved up from seventh last week. Bowdon, previously second, is fifth this week.

In Class A-Private, Wesleyan leads the way with First Presbyterian Day climbing to second. Tattnall Square, previously second, fell to third this week. Mt. de Sales shows at fourth again this week with George Walton taking the fifth spot.
