Week 2: Games through Wednesday, Dec. 14

Analysis: Easy wins over Houston County and Mount de Sales keep Warner Robins on top. A big test, however, comes Friday, when surging Perry (9-1) tries to crack the top 10. Three teams in last week’s top five had losses, so the top of the ledger is in for a bit of a shake-up. Taylor County’s three victories (one by forfeit) vaulted the Vikings into second, with Baldwin, Washington County and Tattnall Square making up the rest of the top five. Macon County, the only other unbeaten girls basketball team in Middle Georgia GHSA play, enters this week at No. 7, while Putnam County drops out after a 1-2 week.
