2. Washington County-5-0
3. Burke County-3-1
4. Strom Thurmond-4-1
5. North Augusta-4-2
8. Silver Bluff-4-1
9. Lincoln County-2-1
-The top four are way in front of everyone else, and you could make a case that Strom Thurmond or Thomson or Washington County could/should be No. 1. But I think Thomson’s wins against Burke County and St. Pius X are incredibly impressive.
-Silver Bluff falls three spots after the blowout loss to Strom Thurmond. The Rebels remain No. 4 for me this week, but they’re not too far behind Burke County. Again, it’s the top four, a gap, and then everyone else -- at least right now.
-After Washington County easily beat Laney, I decided to drop the Wildcats from my poll. Evans is the new team in after beating Jefferson County. The Knights also beat Richmond Academy and lost to Elbert County.
