Two top-ranked teams lost their spots this week in the state’s two largest classes. Tift County makes an appearance in the 6A poll at No. 10, as the Region 1 leading Blue Devils replaced sliding North Cobb, which lost twice last week.

North Gwinnett’s recent wins over Norcross and Alpharetta assured the Bulldogs the No. 1 ranking in 6A, while Tucker’s losses to Miller Grove and Westlake dropped them below surging Stephenson. McIntosh made a small jump up to No. 8 in 5A after quality wins against Starr’s Mill and Whitewater. Creekview, which has not lost since Dec. 7, debuts at No. 10 in 5A.

Central-Carroll made a big splash in 3A by beating Chapel Hill and is ranked No. 6 as a result. In AA, Lovett dropped to No. 10 after losses to ranked teams Decatur and Wesleyan.
