Soccer: GAC moves to No. 1 in Week 2 rankings

By Score Atlanta

There is a new No. 1 in Class AA as Westminster was replaced by Greater Atlanta Christian after dropping two games to out-of-state teams. GAC, on the other hand, picked up a quality win by defeating region-rival Lovett. Undefeated Calhoun jumped to No. 2 while Westside-Augusta, also undefeated, emerged at No. 4 ahead of a logjam of teams with good, but not great resumes.

In Class AAAAAA, Peachtree Ridge dropped after a loss to Brookwood, which climbed to No. 5. Johns Creek dropped out of the rankings after dropping games to Centennial and Lambert. Centennial moved up to No. 3 while East Coweta jumped to sixth. Harrison and Duluth entered in the wake of Meadowcreek and Johns Creek.

Heritage-Conyers and Pope debuted in the Class AAAAA rankings after Tucker and Gainesville lost recent games.

In Class AAA, Buford fell out of the rankings after losses to Decatur and West Hall. Decatur moved up to No. 6.

Gwinnett County remains on top of the AAAAAA rankings despite a recent two-game losing streak by last week’s No. 1 Brookwood. The Broncos fell to No. 6 after posting a pair of losses over the past nine days. Brookwood would rebound with a 9-0 win over South Gwinnett. Collins Hill assumes the top spot after defeating Meadowcreek and Class AAAAA No. 3 McIntosh last week. Mill Creek climbed to No. 2 after defeating Milton and Norcross last week but Lambert is the biggest mover, jumping up to No. 3 after defeating No. 9 Johns Creek on the road and then taking out Chattahoochee. Parkview slipped into the rankings, edging out Dacula after the Panthers beat No. 4 Grayson last Friday.

In Class AAAAA, No. 4 McIntosh posted a 1-1-1 week after facing some tall competition. Meanwhile, North Paulding is ready to move into the rankings should Dunwoody or Gainesville falter. The Red Elephants rolled to a 10-0 win last week to hold on to the No. 9 spot. Whitewater moved up to No. 6 in the latest poll.

In AAAA, Spalding jumped up three spots to No. 7 after a pair of wins last week.

Class AAA featured a flip between new No. 1 Blessed Trinity and No. 2 St. Pius. Pius dropped one spot after a tie against Pope while Blessed Trinity rolled last week with two wins by a combined 25-0 score. Callaway and Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe are new to the poll at No. 9 and No. 10, respectively.

No. 9 Screven County and No. 10 Dublin are new to the Class AA poll while No. 4 Mount Paran and No. 5 Savannah Country Day are new to the Class A poll. No. 3 Hebron Christian moved up after defeating No. 7 Providence Christian.

take a look at Jackson High men soccer (AAA) their record stands at 6-0, also wins coming from two AAAA teams and 1 AAAAA team, this team really deserves to be placed in the top 10 in AAA.
