Volleyball: Week 8 rankings

By Craig Sager II

Score Atlanta

In Class AAAAAA, No. 1 Walton cruised through its six opponents on Saturday, including a 25-14, 25-21 beatdown of Chattahoochee and wins over Roswell and Sandy Creek. No. 2 South Forsyth played seven cross-state matches over the weekend and dropped four of them, but will be well tested for a region battle with Chattahoochee Tuesday night.

In Class AAAAA, Pope was exposed by Sequoyah (25-9, 25-20) and the Greyhounds dropped to No. 7. Sequoyah’s resume locks them in at No. 2 over Starr’s Mill after adding a big win over Woodstock last week as well.

Sandy Creek continues its battle through one of the toughest schedules in the state, but the Patriots were able to grab a huge win over previous No. 1 Columbus Thursday. Marist takes over the No. 1 spot in Class AAAA after a win over Class AAAAAA North Cobb and Columbus takes over No. 2. Sandy Creek jumps to No. 6.

Fresh off a county title, Buford witnessed first hand how tough Class AAA No. 1 Blessed Trinity is during a (25-7, 25-21) defeat last Tuesday. Morgan County comes in at No. 8 after beating previously No. 6-ranked Oconee County.

In Class AA, the rankings stayed the same, but a battle between No. 3 Lovett and No. 1 Westminster is slated for Tuesday night. No. 2 Wesleyan had a straight set win over GAC and Jefferson last week and is right in the mix for No. 1.

In Class A, Holy Innocents’ had an impressive two-set win over Lovett that moves the Golden Bears to No. 1.

AAA is a toss up. Yesterday: St. Pius beat Blessed Trinity, Woodward beat St.Pius and Blessed Trinity beat Woodward. Go figure. Should be a good tournament this year.
