Of Note: No. 4 Lincoln County jumped four slots from last week after knocking off rival No. 20 Washington-Wilkes and thanks in large part to the fact that the Red Devils in-state opponents – Tattnall Square, Aquinas and Warren County – all won last week. Lincoln does not get credit for defeating two teams from South Carolina in the first two weeks of the season – Abbeville and McCormick.
