Westlake has flipped spots with Mill Creek in Class AAAAA based on Westlake's current winning streak, which included an impressive victory over North Clayton. Harrison and Berkmar also moved up while Johnson-Savannah, thanks to a 14-0 record in Region 3-AAAAA, moves into the rankings at No. 10. Johnson took down Savannah 64-55 over the weekend. Westside-Macon enters the Class AAA rankings as Drew and Troup both move up a few slots. In Class AA, Jordan moves up to No. 2 after securing a 20th win of the season. Manchester, ranking near the top of the GACA Coaches poll, debuts in this poll at No. 9 with a 13-2 record. In Class A, no one dropped out but Turner County moved up a few spots with its 17-3 record. Class AAAA remained unchanged after most of top teams came away with victories over the weekend.

Class AAAAA girls saw North Cobb take a tumble from No. 5 down to No. 10 thanks to a recent three-game losing streak. Last week the Warriors fell to No. 1 McEachern by three and then to No. 7 Hillgrove also by three. It was the first loss of the season to Hillgrove however. In Class AAAA, Cedar Shoals has returned to form to move into the rankings at No. 9 while Jonesboro takes the spot of Northside-Warner Robins, which dropped from the rankings. Jonesboro sits at 16-5 on the season. Creekview also moved up in the AAAA rankings to No. 5. Douglas County is the new No. 3 with a 20-1 record. In Class AA, Model and Laney were the biggest movers as each snared a 20th win over the weekend. Buford, which fell to Wesleyan, fell from No. 2 down to No. 5 as the team works Andraya Carter back into form for the playoffs. Don't count out another deep run by the Wolves, but Carter must return to her dominating, pre-injury self. Class A remains unchanged with Wesleyan on top, followed by Calvary Day, Southwest Atlanta Christian and St. Francis.
