Here are the top five teams in the Grand Strand area as ranked by The Sun News’ Ian Guerin:
1. Myrtle Beach
• Seahawks’ toughest region test comes Friday night at home against Socastee.
• Win over Myrtle Beach would be monumental for upstart Braves.
3. Carvers Bay
• Hard to think there’s a better Region VII-A team than the Bears right now.
• Bulldogs could be one of two remaining 2-0 teams in Region VII-AAA after this week.
• That 56-0 victory over Marion is officially what we call a bounce-back game.
