WEEK 9 BOYS RANKINGS
By Kyle Sandy
 

Major movement shakes class rankings 
 
There was major movement in nearly every single classification this week with Class AAAAAAA seeing some big changes of its own.  Westlake shoots up four spots to No. 3 after knocking off  No. 6 Pebblebrook in overtime 80-78 courtesy of a now healthy Jamie Lewis three-pointer with five seconds remaining. The Lions are a perfect 4-0 in Region 2, already holding a win over  No. 4 WheelerBerkmar makes a move to No. 5 after going on the road and beating  No. 7 Norcross 61-58.
A new No. 1 takes over in Class AAAAAA following  No. 2 Gainesville's 63-60 misstep against Class AAAAA No. 2 Cedar Shoals.  South Paulding earns the No. 1 ranking for the first time in school history and has the quality wins to back it up. They went on the road and earned a Region 5 statement victory beating  No. 5 Langston Hughes 57-42, holding potent scorer Landers Nolley to just 10 points after he entered the game averaging over 28 per game.
Eagle's Landing tumbles from No. 2 to No. 8 in Class AAAAA after losing at home 64-55 to  No. 9 Union Grove and on the road at  Dutchtown, 78-73.  No. 7 Columbia knocked  Southwest DeKalb from the poll with a 58-44 road victory. Debuting for the first time this season is  No. 10 Flowery Branch. The Falcons will put their new ranking to the test right away as they travel to Cedar Shoals on Tuesday. The Jaguars won the first meeting 63-50.
In Class AAAA,  Eastside lost to new  No. 8 Salem, 63-61 and fell to Class AAAAAAA No. 1 Newton 91-63.  Stephens County had a miserable week and is now 0-3 in Region 8 after losing to  Madison County 68-62 and  Oconee County 68-59. The two losses give familiar face  No. 9 St. Pius some breathing room as the Golden Lions have started to rack up the wins in region play.
Class AAA  No. 1 Westside-Macon looked sharp as they went 2-0 at the Wally Keller Classic.  No. 2 Greater Atlanta Christian picked up a 49-47 victory at Seneca, SC, one of South Carolina's top ranked teams.  No. 3 Liberty County crushed Thomson again, 88-68 on the road.  Islands drops a spot to No. 7 after losing to Effingham County on the road 68-59.  Calhoun is out of the poll following their 30-point loss to Cartersville. Replacing the Jackets is  No. 10 Long County.
Class AA  No. 3 Josey earned a 45-40 victory over  No. 5 Laney. Region 4 places four teams in the Top 10 with  No. 8 Glenn Hills and  No. 10 Butler reentering, both riding 4-game winning streaks. The two teams will meet at Butler on Tuesday.  No. 6 Chattooga and  No. 7 Banks County continue to handle their business as both have won 10-straight.
There is no movement in Class A-Private.  No. 1 Greenforest went 2-1 at the Bass Pro Tournament of Champions.  No. 3 Southwest Atlanta Christian hosts a streaking  No. 6 Holy Innocents' on Tuesday.
Class A-Public  No. 1 Calhoun County dismantled  No. 10 Turner County 80-57.  No. 4 Treutlen remained perfect as they survived  Montgomery County on the road in overtime 76-69.  Clinch County falls three spots to No. 8 after losing to new  No. 9 Irwin County 61-57 and Cook 53-50.
