In the state's largest classification, the Walton Raiders moved up a couple spots after winning the Warpath Invitational in Canton, while former No. 1 Milton dropped after finishing behind the Raiders. After a fourth-place finish in Canton, Kennesaw Mountain entered the rankings at No. 9.

The Brookwood boys won the Carrollton Orthopaedic Invitational and moved into the top five due to their performance. While Mill Creek and Marietta were in the same meet, neither brought its full squad and, therefore, did not see it affect their ranking much. Starr's Mill improved two spots in the AAAAA poll after an impressive seventh-place finish in Carrollton.

Also in the boys rankings, Cartersville moved into the top five in the AAA poll.

There was a major shakeup in the girls Class AAAAAA poll after Milton took first place in Canton easily ahead of Walton and previously top-ranked Roswell. The Eagles are now in the top spot with the Raiders behind in second. Also, Centennial entered the poll after an impressive finish in Canton, and Marietta entered after a third-place finish at the Carrollton Orthopaedic Invitational.

The McIntosh girls made probably the biggest leap of the week, as the Chiefs entered the Class AAAAA poll at No. 6 after taking third place in the competitive Carrollton meet.
