Here are the top five teams in the Grand Strand area as ranked by The Sun News’ Ian Guerin:
1. Myrtle Beach
• Friday night’s Victory Bell game only thing standing in way of 5-0 start.
• Braves have week off before playing host to North Myrtle Beach in region opener.
• Looking ahead, Lions have three of five region games at home this year.
4. North Myrtle Beach
• Chiefs have one more tune-up (Green Sea-Floyds) before Socastee showdown.
• Tigers made noise last week. A win this Friday at Myrtle Beach would be significantly louder.
