ELCA stays No. 1 while Commerce rises to the top public spot in latest power ratings

At the halfway point in the season, there was a little bit of movement in this week’s Georgia High School Association/MaxPreps Class A Power Ratings.

On the public side, Eagle’s Landing Christian Academy (5-0) remained in the top spot. But the rest of the top five is different from last week. Athens Academy (4-0) moved up two spots to No. 2, Prince Avenue Christian (5-0) moved up two spots to No. 3, upstart Mount Vernon Presbyterian (5-0) dropped one spot to No. 4, and Savannah Country Day (3-1) moved up from No. 10 to No. 5, tied with Stratford Academy (4-0) which rose three spots from No. 8 last week.

On the public side, Commerce (4-0) moved up to the top spot from No. 2 last week, Manchester (5-0) jumped two spots to No. 2, Mt. Zion-Carroll (4-0) dropped two spots to No. 3, Trion (4-1) fell one spot to No. 4, and Jenkins County (4-1) vaulted four spots up to No. 5 this week.

Remember, the top 24 teams advance to the state playoffs, with the first eight receiving a first-round bye.
