There is a new No. 1 in Class A.

After Wilcox Co. upset Charlton Co. Friday night, Clinch Co. jumped into the No. 1 spot over No. 2 Wesleyan. The Patriots, who have still not lost a home game since 2005, rose to No. 4. Savannah Christian and Lincoln Co. both climbed one spot - to No. 3 and No. 5 respectively - while the Indians dropped to No. 6 after their loss.

Class AAAAA also saw some significant changes. Following Lowndes' 24-17 Winnersville Classic victory, the Vikings moved up to No. 3 while Valdosta moved up two spots to No. 6 despite the loss.

Peachtree Ridge fell to No. 8 after their upset loss to county rival Collins Hill. Grayson (No. 7) and Stephenson (No. 5) each moved ahead of the Lions.

Meanwhile, Brookwood re-entered the rankings at No. 9 while Etowah debuted in the top 10 at No. 10.

Class AAAA saw just one major change as Marist dropped two spots to No. 8 following their sluggish 6-3 win over Lakeside-DeKalb. Flowery Branch then moved to No. 6 while Thomas County Central landed at No. 7.
