BASEBALL RANKINGS
 
Milton re-enters poll; White County, Greebrier climb to No. 2

 

Despite each top-ranked team holding steady this week, there were several changes in the

White County HS

baseball rankings. Starting in Class AAAAAA, Milton rejoined the rankings one week after dropping out. The defending state champion Eagles have won three straight and six of seven.

 

In Class AAAAA, Greenbrier moved up to No. 2 after a dominant win over Evans and a Gainesville defeat. Undefeated Allatoona, meanwhile, moved into the top five.

 

Columbia and Griffin entered the Class AAAA top five after weeks of consistent play. Griffin's win over Spalding allowed the Bears to replace Spalding in the top five.

 

White County moved to No. 2 in Class AAA after an undefeated start and Oconee County shot into the top five after winning nine of 10 games.

 

Bremen and GAC rose to top-five status in Class AA and Benedictine debuted in the rankings this week at No. 9 after beginning region play 7-0 and going undefeated against Class AA competition.

 

In Class A, King's Ridge Christian made the top five while Providence Christian climbed to the No. 7 spot.

RECRUITING BUZZ: AHMED HILL 
By Stephen Black
 
Aquinas guard may re-open recruitment

 

 

In the wake of former Marquette coach Buzz Williams leaving for the Virginia Tech job, Aquinas shooting guard Ahmed Hill faces a decision. The 6-foot-5, 190-pound star

Aquinas HS

was offered by several major college basketball programs, but signed with the Golden Eagles due to his close relationship with Williams.

 

"I am going to see who (Marquette) hires before making a decision," Hill said on Tuesday.

 

Should Hill decide to rescind his scholarship signing, Virginia Tech would obviously be one of the favorites due to his relationship with Williams.

 

"Missouri and some others offered me (prior to his signing with Marquette), but I will listen to whoever calls me," said Hill.

 

Despite offers from programs like Missouri, Indiana, Florida, Kansas, UConn, Georgia and Georgia Tech, Hill thinks he would have to reconsider his favorites should he rescind his scholarship as some schools may have signed players at his position.

 

Hill found out about Williams' departure right after the former Marquette coach broke the news to the team. Williams then followed up with a phone call.

 

Hill was rated a 4-star by ESPN, 24-7 Sports, Scout and Rivals.com.

Sources have indicated that former Pitt and UCLA coach Ben Howland is a top candidate for the job and has expressed interest in the Marquette job.

Tuesday. Halle Huff scored twice and Reagan Glisson added one goal while keeper Melissa Gray recorded the shutout against the Wildcats. Danielle Marcano, Abbie Abrahart and Tori Wisted delivered the assists.                    

Region-rival Lovett hammered Atlanta International School 7-0 last Wednesday, beat Paideia 2-1 last Saturday and blanked Pace Academy 1-0 on Tuesday. Paideia, ranked sixth in Class A, took the field three times last week. The Panthers lost to Fellowship Christian 3-2 last Tuesday and beat Pace Academy 3-1 last Friday before succumbing to Lovett.                    

  

Duluth enjoyed a productive week that has it debuting in the current Class AAAAAA rankings at No. 9. The Wildcats edged South Forsyth 1-0 last Tuesday and got the best of North Gwinnett 3-1 last Friday. In Friday's Region 7 showdown, Duluth trailed 1-0 on a North Gwinnett goal by Katie Strand before rallying. The Wildcats scored on a Klaudia Cancino corner kick just prior to halftime and they got second-half goals from Nadia Dixon and Madison Richardson.                     

  

"Our whole theme this year is 'Prepare for battle,'" Duluth head coach Lauren Dodson told the Gwinnett Daily Post. "I told the girls that our No. 1 advantage is to surprise our opponents and to get in there and attack and I think it's working out for us."                    

  

Almost everything has been working out this season for Harrison and Grayson, the top two teams in the Class AAAAAA rankings. Harrison has not allowed a single goal in its last six contests while outscoring opponents by 52 goals during the stretch. The Hoyas cruised past North Cobb 8-0 last Friday and beat Pebblebrook 10-0 on Tuesday. Grayson is outscoring opponents 13-0 in two games since its first-ever win over Parkview on March 14. The Rams took care of Dacula 8-0 last Tuesday and rolled over Central Gwinnett 5-0 last Friday.
