Six teams represented Cobb County in the Georgia Sports Writers Association poll released Wednesday, with three others receiving votes.
The one team new to the rankings is Mount Paran Christian, which entered the Class A private-school poll at No. 9, as it prepares to kick off the season Friday at Our Lady of Mercy.
“It’s an honor to be ranked in the top 10,” said Mount Paran coach Mitch Jordan, whose team was 10th to end the 2018 season. “It’s a testament to our former players and teams. They have set the expectation for this year’s team.”
