Baseball: Milton, Redan climb to No. 3; Dunwoody, Creekview make AAAAA top 10

Milton shot up to No. 3 in a topsy-turvy Class AAAAAA poll as several teams ahead of the previously-seventh-ranked Eagles

suffered defeats. Etowah lost three straight and dropped to No. 10 while Walton climbed back into the top five after beating Wheeler and Lassiter last week.

Class AAAAA also saw several ranked teams lose including No. 1 Whitewater, which lost to rival McIntosh. However, the Wildcats remained No. 1 as the rest of the top four also lost games. Dunwoody and Creekview made this week's rankings as each team is riding an impressive winning streak.

In Class AAAA, Redan rode a six-game winning streak to the No. 3 spot this week while Locust Grove is now No. 4 with a gaudy 17-2 record. Veterans also made the top five after winning 12 of 13 games.

Blessed Trinity dropped from No. 2 to No. 6 while St. Pius, which beat the Titans last week, rose to No. 5. Cartersville completed a two-game sweep of Ringgold and is now ranked No. 9 ahead of the 10th-ranked Tigers.

Berrien made the Class AA poll this week as Region 1-AA now has three teams in the top 10.

In Class A, Athens Christian made the top five as Pace Academy dropped to No. 6 after a loss to Paideia last week.
