In Class AAAAAA, Dalton leads the pack with a 13-0 record and a 6-1 over Creekview on March 26. Pope is coming off a 4-4 tie on the road at Walton.

Decatur is the team to beat in Class AAAAA despite a 1-1 tied with Class AAAAAAA No. 3 Lakeside-DeKalb on March 28. Cross Keys, at 11-1, is No. 2 and riding momentum from back-to-back 10-0 shutouts of Columbia and Miller Grove, both at home. Johnson-Gainesville climbed up from fourth to third this week and Starr’s Mill moved from sixth to fourth while McIntosh slid from third to fifth.
