Looks like the Bremen Blue Devils could be #2 in AAAAAA with the big wins at Kyle Maynard? Need to stay healthy and keep working hard to be #1 in AA. I see you finally researched Mt. Zion in A and have them ranked this week. There is some very good wrestling in West Georgia.

My gift to the AJC was in waking up to the realization that Alexander was not #1 and never should have been placed there! Week after week of finishing below others yet they retained the top spot? Go Figure. But luckily we elves straightened it out.

How is Banks County #7 when they have beat four five and six in AAA? and lost only one match all year and that was to Pope (#1 in AAAAA) at The Maynard Duals.
