Class AAAAA No. 1 Pope remained at the top of the polls after winning a second straight duals title. Class AAAA No. 5 Marist slipped down from No. 2 after Alexander finished runner-up to No. 1 Gilmer. AAA No. 1 Banks County tripped up former No. 1 Woodward Academy in the finals to also grab the No. 1 spot.

I would like to see an attempt to rank the top 8 in all 14 weight classes in all 6 divisions. That many names would”sell a lot of local papers” and be relevant to the State Traditional tournament. It would require some journalistic research and polling….just guessing team winners for a traditional tournament leaves some folks out in the cold that may have a good wrestler or two.
