Late August Volleyball Power Rankings

Enough matches are in the books for us to make some assessments and re-organize our Power Rankings! Here we go!

#1 JEFFERSON

RECORD: 6-2 (0-0)
LAST RANKING: #1
STATE RANKING: #3

The Lady Dragons are looking really sharp. Maddie Grace Smith has been sensational. A couple of hiccups with some early losses, but no doubt Jefferson belongs here.


#2 WHITE COUNTY

RECORD: 4-1 (0-0)
LAST RANKING: #4
STATE RANKING: #7

The Lady Warriors continue to impress with a nice 4-1 start to the season, which includes wins over Tallulah Falls and Rabun, but the sole loss against Habersham Central. With the full body of work here, White County will still sit ahead of all three of those teams.


#3 LUMPKIN COUNTY

RECORD: 7-1 (0-0)
LAST RANKING: #6
STATE RANKING: N/A

This team is looking VERY good, with wins over Tallulah Falls, Habersham, Rabun, Union, Elbert, Flowery Branch, and Chestatee. State ranking has to be coming soon.


#4 TALLULAH FALLS

RECORD: 2-9 (0-0)
LAST RANKING: #5
STATE RANKING: N/A

The Lady Indians are not exactly where they want to be right now. To their credit, they have played four state-ranked opponents as part of their schedule which has included ZERO teams in their own classification. Senior Katy Corbett continues to play at a high level. The highlights include wins over Habersham and Flowery Branch. They also took #3-ranked Jefferson to the wire.


#5 HABERSHAM CENTRAL

RECORD: 3-3 (0-0)
LAST RANKING: #2
STATE RANKING: N/A

Habersham is a young group, and will continue to improve with each passing match. A win for the Lady Raiders over White County and Union has them ahead of the Lady Warriors, but head-to-head losses to Tallulah Falls and Lumpkin have them below those programs.


#6 DAWSON COUNTY

RECORD: 0-3 (0-0)
LAST RANKING: #3
STATE RANKING: #9

Dawson is off to a rocky start at 0-3, but those matches weren’t exactly cake walks. The program is still ranked #9 in the state.


#7 RABUN COUNTY

RECORD: 1-3 (0-0)
LAST RANKING: #7
STATE RANKING: #5

Rabun is state-ranked #5, but is 1-3 so far known on the season. That includes losses to Lumpkin, White, and North Hall and a win over East Hall.


#8 UNION COUNTY

RECORD: 0-3 (0-0)
LAST RANKING: #8
STATE RANKING: #8

Union is ranked #8 in the state despite the rough start. The girls have dropped games to Habersham and Lumpkin.


#9 STEPHENS COUNTY

RECORD: 0-4 (0-0)
LAST RANKING: #9
STATE RANKING: N/A

The Lady Indians are looking for that first win of the season after starting out 0-4.


#10 BANKS COUNTY

RECORD: 1-4 (0-0)
LAST RANKING: #10
STATE RANKING: N/A

Banks County beat Burke County on August 18, winning its first ever match and first ever sets in the process.


#11 COMMERCE

RECORD: 0-4 (0-0)
LAST RANKING: #10
STATE RANKING: N/A

Commerce looks for its first set win in program history, which likely will come some point soon.
