No. 1 Athens Academy won the Class A private schools state championship at First Presbyterian. Meanwhile, Georgia Military won the public school championship and entered the poll at No. 10.

Behind No. 4 Walton, Etowah came in second at the Region 5-AAAAAA championship at Canton. The Eagles moved up to No. 6, ahead of Milton which came in third place.

North Oconee outraced its rivals at the Region 8-AAA meet at East Jackson and replaced Oconee County at No. 4.

At the Region 7-AAAA meet at Jasper No. 6 Dalton won, but Pickens County’s second-place showing was enough to swap places with Northwest Whitfield, which took third.

In Region 7-AA, Model and Murray County switch spots as Model took the region meet.

At Oglethorpe County, Riverside Military beat its Region 8-AA competition and moved to No. 8, while Jefferson came in at fourth and consequently dropped out of the poll.

Oconee County entered the Class AAA poll at No. 10.

No. 1 Landmark Christian won the girls Class A private school championship, also at First Presbyterian. Towns County won the girls public championship and debuted in the Class A poll at No. 10.

In the girls meet at Canton, Walton knocked off No. 1 Milton and took over the top spot in this week’s poll. Also, Etowah came in fourth and climbed to No. 6 while Woodstock, the sixth-place finisher, dropped to No. 10.

In Class AAA, Blessed Trinity took over No. 1 for St. Pius X after defeating the Golden Lions in the Region 6-AAA meet.
