We have a new number one this week. Mountain Heritage moves into the top spot followed very closely by Franklin and ACR. The difference between the top three is razor thin. ACR has speed and athletes, Franklin and Heritage both have swarming defenses and powerful offenses.

The newcomer to the top 10 is West. We should have known they were good when they took Hendersonville to the limit a couple weeks ago, but sometimes it takes a while...lol. Brevard is making a steady climb up the poll and Tuscola moves up as well. A very talented TC Roberson keeps falling due to close losses and i wonder how they recover with the meat of the rugged Western Mountain Conference looming. 

 

1 Mountain Heritage, 3-0

2 Franklin, 4-0

2 A.C. Reynolds, 3-1 

 

4 Murphy, 3-1

5 Mitchell, 4-0

6 Hendersonville, 3-1 


7 Cherokee, 3-0


8 West Henderson, 3-1 

9 Polk, 3-0

10 Pisgah, 3-1

11 Brevard, 3-1

12 Tuscola, 2-1 

13 TC Roberson, 0-4

14 Robbinsville, 2-1

15 Madison, 2-2

16 North Henderson, 2-1

17 Swain 1-3

 

18 Smoky Mountain, 2-1

19 Asheville, 1-3 

 

20 Erwin, 0-3

21 East Henderson, 1-3  

22 Avery, 1-3

21 Andrews, 1-23

22 Rosman, 0-4

23 Hayesville, 1-3 

24 Enka, 1-3

25 North Buncombe, 0-4 

26 Owen, 0-3

Looks good Paul, I almost said swap Mitchell and Hendersonville, but I guess Mitchell gets the nod since they beat them the last two years.

I think it is pretty close 1-4, then a fair drop with Mitchell. Yes, Murphy lost to Franklin, but it was a tight ballgame, and someone had to lose...

Paul, you have TCR ranked above Asheville who just beat them. Having teams like NH and Madison ranked above teams like Asheville and Erwin seems far fetched. I always look at a teams strength of schedule.

 

My picks..

 

1. ACR

2. Heritage

3. Franklin

4. Hendersonville

5. Murphy

6. Pisgah

7. Mitchell

8. Asheville

9. Tuscola

10. TCR

11. West Hendo

12. Brevard

13. Erwin

14. North Hendo

15. Smoky mtn

16. Robbinsville

17. Cherokee

18. Swain

19. Madison

20. East Hendo

21. Avery

22. Enka

23. Owen

24. Rosman

25. NB

26. Hayesville

27. Andrews

They are 2-2. They beat Rosman and Chase

 

Your right they did beat TCR and I should have accounted for that? I'm not going back in and changing it now even though I find it hard to believe a team that takes Crest to the limit and loses three games by 8 points is bad

I think this is closer to the truth as for now.  I really don't think Cherokee gets by us, Polk should be a good one in 2 weeks. West is looking pretty good. Brevard has played a cupcake NC schedule other than MH.

Do you think Madison or NH could beat Asheville?

I think Asheville got out to a slow start. Kinda like some of the rest of us. Madison has not dropped off much. But no, I think Asheville would beat NH and Madison. The win over TC showed they were improving.
