HS wrestling poll: Brookwood, Meadowcreek move up

By Score Atlanta

Meadowcreek is quickly asserting itself into the AAAAAA title picture as the No. 9 Mustangs continue to place well against top Gwinnett County competition. Meadowcreek took first place at the Black Knight Duals, taking out Centennial, Duluth, Central Gwinnett, Berkmar and Class AAA No. 8 McNair en route to the title. Centennial placed third and Berkmar finished fourth.

West Forsyth claimed the Warrior Classic at North Atlanta. Mountain View finished in second as Adam Flatt won the 106-pound division.

Earlier last week, Class AAAAAA No. 4 Brookwood won the Battle of Five Forks for the second straight year. The Broncos improved to 12-2 after knocking off No. 8 Parkview 35-20. Drew McCrokle, James Pham, Andrew Collins and Terrell Anderson were some of the standouts for Brookwood while Andrew Webb, Terrance Lindsey, An Vu and Harrison Schmid were all winners for Parkview.

In a major showdown, No. 1 Collins Hill knocked off No. 5 Kennesaw Mountain 41-33. Codi Russell, Ryan Millhof, Griffin Riley, Michael Roquet, Jimmy Gall and Anthony Codella all earned wins for Collins Hill.

Pepperell made a case for inclusion in the rankings by finishing second in the Mt. Zion Screamin’ Eagle event over the weekend. Mt. Zion won the event, but Pepperell beat out teams such as Temple, Hiram, Chapel Hill, Villa Rica and Class AA No. 4 Bremen.

Finally, Class A No. 1 Gordon Lee went 4-0 to win the Brett Warren Invitational held at Dade County High School Saturday.

Dawson county may need to be in the top ten. Because they beat Blessed Trinity on 12-8 in Blue Ridge at the Rumble on the Ridge.

1A loaded Area 4 This year with teams ranking 1,3,5,7,8,and 9 will all have to wrestle for 2 spots at state duals. Another great balance set up by GHSA. Then a total of 2 teams from area 1 and 2 combined. Looks very fair.

Wonder why the Carrollton team is ranked 8th in AAAA when they defeated first ranked Alexander this past week 42 to 31?

How is Gilmer behind Alexander in AAAA? Gilmer finished 2nd losing only to likely the best wrestling team in the state and Alexander finihsed 4th. Gilmer won the elite tournament in North Carolina beating the #11 team in the Nation. Gilmer placed 2nd this weekend at another multi-state tournament in North Carolina barely losing to the top team from West Virginia….Go Figure! No way Gilmer does not win yet another state championship!
