Volleyball: Week 3 rankings

By Score Atlanta

In Class AA Wesleyan topped Lovett (25-21, 25-22) in straight sets of its highly competitive top 10 playdate. The Wolves finished 1-3, but fell to Savannah Christian (25-16, 22-25, 15-13), Westminster (25-21, 25-14) and Landmark Christian (25-20, 27-25). Jefferson emerged as the newest member in the Class AA top 10 after toppling former No. 10 Rabun County in straight sets. The Dragons won five of six matches Saturday, including wins over East Jackson, Athens Christian, Winder Barrow, Rabun County and Chestatee. Jefferson improves to 10-3 on the season. Grace Williamson had 26 aces and 22 kills for the Dragons Saturday.

In Class AAAAAA North Cobb moves to 9-3 on the season and went 4-0 this weekend in its annual play date.The Warriors topped Sandy Creek (26-24, 25-10), Starr’s Mill (25-13, 25-23), North Gwinnett (24-26, 25-16, 15-11) and Norcross (25-19, 27-25).

Whitewater fell in the rankings, and the losses to Sequoyah, Northside-Columbus, Newnan and Columbus bumped the Wildcats outside of the top 5. Allatoona lost to Riverwood over the weekend, and as a result the Raiders replace Allatoona at No. 10.

Sandy Creek had a difficult slate of games last weekend, and fell victim to it. Landmark Christian, North Cobb, Blessed Trinity, Roswell and Etowah all concluded the weekend sweep of the Patriots.

Blessed Trinity remains at top of Class AAA after sweeps of Starr’s Mill, North Gwinnett, Norcross and Sandy Creek over the weekend. The Titans remain perfect on the season at 15-0.

Savannah Christian upset top ranked Landmark Christian (18-25, 14-25, 5-15) and takes over No. 1 in the highly competitive Class A with Holy Innocents’ and Walker close behind.

Trust me…South Forsyth is much better than North Cobb and possibly Harrison. And Johns Creek is a solid #4 as they beat NC in 2 and Pope in 2 as well. You need someone who KNOWS the local teams to help on your rankings.

@Vballguy — Harrison beat South Forsyth on Saturday. Harrison’s best player was out with an injury.

South Forsyth is real strong, beat Buford and North Gwinnett yesterday straight sets.

Not sure beating Buford in volleyball is proof of strength!

Harrison and South Forsyth were both missing a kid that would have been playing, and contributing, when they played. Neither was missing “their best player” but a strong/consistent player. The scores were 25-15 South Forsyth and then 25-22, 15-12 Harrison. Looks like the top 3 in AAAAAA will be intense this year.

Won’t go into detail….but I see a LOT of volleyball. S. Forsyth is VERY strong…and it sounds like that was a great match. I know they are definitely better and deeper than North Cobb. And Sequoyah is DEFINITELY a top 10 team in 5A. White Water has very little after graduating NINE players and losing a coach. Just goes to show the someone here isn’t doing their homework. One more note….Roswell has the athletes to play with just about anyone…just a matter of if they can get the leadership they need.
