High School Football Region Standings
The high school football region standings for leagues including local Bartow County teams.
It is a challenging week for local teams in Cartersville and Bartow County.
With the exception of the Adairsville Tigers, each local program will take on an opponent Friday night that is currently ranked in the Top Ten of the most recent Georgia High School Football Daily / Atlanta Journal-Constitution polls.
In Class AAAAA and specifically Region 7-AAAAA, defending state champion Rome (3-0) remains atop the classification. Meanwhile, local teams Woodland and Cass make trips to take on two other teams from that region in the Top Ten. Woodland (2-2) travels to 4th-ranked Carrollton (3-0) while Cass (0-4) journeys to 9th-ranked Kell (1-3).
Cartersville (4-0) is again the No. 1 ranked team in Class AAAA and has been all season. The Purple Hurricanes host 10th-ranked Cedartown (4-0) Friday night at Weinman Stadium for their 2017 Homecoming game and it is also the Region 5-AAAA opener for both teams. Also from the Canes' region, Sandy Creek (3-1) is ranked No. 8.
The remainder of the Class AAAA Top Ten includes No. 2 Thomson, No. 3 Marist, No. 4 Blessed Trinity, No. 5 Jefferson, No. 6 Ridgeland, No. 7 Burke County, and No. 9 Woodward Academy.
In Class AAA, Calhoun (3-1) and Bremen (4-0) from Adairsville's Region 6-AAA remain in the Top Ten. Both teams moved up one spot in the poll. Calhoun is ranked fifth. Bremen is No. 7.
