My Weekly Power Poll

1. Thomson-9-0

2. Burke County-8-1

3. Strom Thurmond-10-1

4. Washington County-9-1

5. North Augusta-8-3

6. Washington-Wilkes-8-1

7. Silver Bluff-9-1

8. Lincoln County-8-1

9. Screven County-8-1

10. Augusta Christian-11-0

 

-There are no changes to my poll this week. North Augusta did lose to Dutch Fork, but I kept it at No. 5. I think, based on talent and what they’ve accomplished, the Yellow Jackets are the fifth-best team in the area.

 

-Congrats to Screven County. The Gamecocks went from 2-8 in 2011 to region champions this season. Their only loss came to Class AAA’s Appling County, a 7-1-1 team.

 

-Speaking of region champions, Lincoln County is also one. The Red Devils beat Wilcox County 21-19 to win their 37th region title.

 

-Wayne
