The Top 3 in Class 7A remain unchanged but below there is plenty of movement. No. 8 Parkview falls four spots after injuries have put a damper on their upside. The Panthers lost 67-50 to Newton as starting point guard Joze Baker was out on crutches with a hamstring injury and Cassie Mesh had her arm in a cast, zapping the Panthers of two key rotational guards. No. 5 Marietta moves up a spot. They were dominant in a 79-48 win over a shorthanded Dacula at the QwikCut Classic. Michigan State-signee Lauren Walker finished with 22 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal and 5 blocks while Chloe Sterling added 21 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists and 4 steals while hitting 5 threes. Makayah Harris was the third head of the attack, posting 18 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 10 steals. No. 6 North Forsyth bounced South Forsyth (15-3) from the rankings with a 45-24 win on the road. Ali Jones hit 5 threes and finished with 15 points while Maddie Erickson scored 12 points inside. No. 10 Brookwood barely hangs onto their position in the poll. Their 62-60 win at Grayson keeps them afloat after their 67-46 loss to Class 6A No. 7 Kell. No. 9 Norcross debuts in the Top 10. All five of their losses have come against ranked opponents. The Lady Blue picked up a 46-43 win over Archer to highlight their week. Mariah Baltierra netted 15 in the win.

No. 1 Westlake extended their Georgia winning streak to 100 games in Class 6A. They blasted No. 5 Lovejoy 68-44 and No. 4 Langston Hughes 58-39, both on the road. Ta’Niya Latson poured in 27 points in the win over Lovejoy while South Carolina-signee Raven Johnson collected 22 points, 5 rebounds, 8 assists and 7 steals. Against Langston Hughes, Latson score 21 points and Virginia Tech-commit Brianna Turnage posted 4 points and 17 rebounds. The Lions play Class 5A No. 1 Forest Park on Monday at the J4 Sports MLK Holiday Classic as they look to push their winning streak to 101. Langston Hughes lost to Forest Park 38-25. Lovejoy bounced back with a 55-47 win over Class A-Private No. 4 Holy Innocents’. No. 2 Carrollton outpaced Newton at the QwikCut Classic 62-41. Vanderbilt-signee De’Mauri Flournoy posted 18 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists and 6 steals while Eghosa Obasuyi scored 12 points and Kehinde Obasuyi netted 10. JeNee Edwards had 9 points and Kanija Daniel finished with 8 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals and 4 blocks. No. 3 Buford is up a spot after handling last week’s Class 4A No. 1 Jefferson 68-45. No. 6 Sprayberry got 47 points and 7 assists from Flau’jae Johnson in an 86-60 win over Osborne. No. 7 Kell beat Class 7A No. 10 Brookwood on the road 67-46 as Crystal Henderson dumped in 25 points. No. 8 Statesboro dispatched of Brunswick 45-37 behind Madison Lee’s 16 points and Jamiah Jones’ 13. Rockdale County (12-3) slips out of the rankings following a 72-66 loss to Grayson at the QwikCut Classic. Alana Moore finished with 20 points and 8 rebounds in the defeat. The Bulldogs are replaced by No. 10 River Ridge. The Knights are back in the poll after wins over Creekview (70-36), Centennial (55-25) and Cambridge (55-44). Mataya Gayle dumped in 22 points while Allie Sweet scored 18 and Leigh Codiniera netted 13 points in the win over Cambridge.

Class 5A No. 1 Forest Park won a defensive struggle with Class 6A No. 4 Langston Hughes 38-25 and will now try to end Class 6A No. 1 Westlake’s reign of terror over the GHSA. No. 5 Loganville took care of Rockmart at the QwikCut Classic 62-39. Janae Charles was a handful inside with 18 points, 10 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal and 1 block. Lenoir-Rhyne-signee Rose Bone and Sydney Bolden scored 13 apiece. No. 6 Cass rallied from down 29-17 at the half to beat No. 8 Hiram 55-48. Londaisha Smith scored 22 points to lead the way while Ariana Hames added 12.

A new number one surfaces in Class 4A as No. 1 Luella takes the mantle. Furman-signee Jada Session poured in 41 points, 16 rebounds and 3 blocks in an 85-26 rout of Riverdale while Coppin State-commit Cortney Gardner triple-doubled with 17 points, 12 assists and 12 steals. No. 2 Jefferson sinks a spot. The Dragons beat Class 2A No. 4 Rabun County 65-62 but lost 68-45 at Class 6A No. 3 Buford. No. 3 Troup County netted a 41-32 win over Hardaway while No. 4 Carver-Columbus destroyed Kendrick 100-23. No. 5 Arabia Mountain climbs a sport after taking down No. 6 Marist 57-51, dropping the War Eagles three places. No. 10 Cedar Shoals narrowly clings onto their position in the Top 10. They were upset by Chestatee 63-49 after beating Flowery Branch 35-29. In the loss, Skylar Lattimore scored 16 points and Ashley Lester had 10.

In Class 3A, North Georgia wasn’t long for the top of the poll. After just one week, No. 1 Johnson-Savannah reclaims the throne. No. 4 Lumpkin County slips three spots after a 58-57 loss to White County in overtime. No. 5 Coahulla Creek had an opportunity to ascend to the top, but they are down three places following a second heart-breaking loss to No. 3 Sonoraville 57-55. The Phoenix even had designs on number one, but their week started with a 64-60 loss at Rockmart as Megan Little hit 6 threes to finish with 26 points while Indiana-signee Keyarah Berry dropped 25. Screaming up to the top of the rankings as three teams ahead of them lose is No. 2 Upson-Lee. The Knights surge up five positions and need to be taken seriously as a title threat. At 11-0, Upson-Lee has played a respectable schedule that has accumulated a 51-34 record. The Knights beat Troy-signee Gabbi Cartagena and Jackson 74-65, Pike County 85-62 and finished off the week with a 77-23 blowout of Taylor County. In the win over Pike County, Jakera Ellerbee netted 27 points while Alonzea Montgomery posted 21.

The first domino fell in Region 8-2A as No. 2 Elbert County defeated No. 4 Rabun County 56-40 to swap spots. The Blue Devils received 18 points and 9 rebounds from Niya Moon followed by 16 points and 6 rebounds from Aaniyah Allen and 14 points from Terrace Hester. Rabun County also lost a hard-fought 65-62 battle at last week’s Class 4A No. 1 Jefferson. No. 3 Washington County had a nice 60-39 win against No. 10 Northeast-Macon as Miracle Parker poured in 25 points and 4 assists. Sinking from the Top 10 are Woodville-Tompkins (9-3) and Dade County (5-3). Woodville-Tompkins has now lost three-straight including losses to 5-10 Islands 44-39 and 7-9 Toombs County 55-43. Dade County, another pack of Wolverines, lost 53-48 to Model. No. 8 East Laurens debuts as well as No. 9 Butler. East Laurens handled Toombs County 50-29 and Swainsboro 52-39 this week. 5-foot-5 senior Kristen Hubbard is averaging 14.8 points, 2.9 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 3.2 steals while 5-foot-9 Ikeria Hamilton chips in 13.1 points, 7.9 rebounds, 3.7 steals and 1.9 blocks. Butler has proven to be the one of the best teams in Augusta, scoring wins over Josey (43-40) and Grovetown (54-46) already this year before adding a 62-50 win at Laney this past week. 6-foot-2 Jayla Thomas powers the Bulldogs with 13.3 points and 1.9 blocks. 5-foot-7 Brianna Sims makes them go with 13.1 points, 7.1 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.3 steals.\

Just when you think Class A-Private has sorted itself out, No. 4 Holy Innocents’ throws a monkey wrench into things. The Golden Bears destroyed last week’s No. 1, No. 5 Mt. Paran dropping them four spots following a 64-34 loss. Holy Innocents’ rises three spots but were beat 55-47 by Class 6A No. 5 Lovejoy. No. 1 Hebron Christian retakes the top spot after a 3-0 week highlighted by a 69-58 win over Grayson. No. 2 ELCA is up two spots and has a 51-50 victory in hand over Hebron Christian. The Chargers added to their resume with a 52-41 win against No. 7 Wesleyan, Jacksonville-signee Jalisa Dunlap netting 20 points. No. 8 Calvary Day usurps inactive No. 9 Greenforest. Hannah Cail poured in 30 points while Mahkayla Premo pumped in 28 in the Cavaliers’ 78-51 win at Bulloch Academy. Tallulah Falls (9-4) drops out after a 43-35 loss at debutant No. 10 Athens Academy. The Spartans have played well in life after Rose Bone. Junior Jaila Salley-Barnett scored 16 points in the win over the Indians while Meredith Reynolds netted 10 points.

Class A-Public is still moving in slow motion. No. 3 Lake Oconee Academy got 30 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals from Chattanooga-signee Destiny McClendon in their 67-47 win at Towns County. No. 4 Clinch County had a busy week going 4-0. Angel McRae closed out the week with 27 points in a win over Lanier County. No. 6 Turner County slips a spot after losing 50-46 to Irwin County. No. 5 Dublin continues to roll. The Irish edged Montgomery County 45-43. No. 7 Trion jumps No. 8 GMC after wins over Bowdon (65-45) and Mt. Zion-Carrollton (56-42). The Bulldogs came back from down 14 to beat Mt. Zion. In the win over Bowdon, Chloe Murdock piled in 32 points. Pelham (2-0) is out due to inactivity. Into the poll is No. 10 ECI who last appeared in Week 2. The Bulldogs have now won three-straight with the return of Kennesaw State-signee Prencis Harden. They knocked off Jenkins County 66-55 this past week.
