ELCA, Manchester remain atop updated power ratings before regular season finales

In the penultimate edition of the Georgia High School Association/MaxPreps Class A Power Ratings, not much changed among private schools while there were a couple of big moves on the public side.

The top five private schools – Eagle’s Landing Christian Academy, Prince Avenue Christian, Athens Academy, Stratford Academy and Mount Paran Christian – all stayed in order, with Stratford moving up a spot to tie Athens Academy for No. 3. Manchester and Irwin County remained first and second, respectively, on the public side, while Mt. Zion-Carroll move up one spot to No. 3 and Emanuel County Institute skyrocketed seven spots into the No. 4 slot. Marion County maintained its No. 5 rating from last week. Jenkins County, which was No. 3 last week, fell all the way to No. 9 after losing the sub-region championship game to ECI, 39-12. ECI will travel to Savannah to face Calvary Day, No. 7 in the private ratings, for the Region 3 title.
