No major shift again when it comes to Grand Strand football teams in the statewide football polls.
Socastee (5-0) remained No. 5 in Class AAA, where region foe North Myrtle Beach (4-0) was also receiving votes. Georgetown's loss at Carvers Bay knocked the Bulldogs off the short-list of teams receiving votes. Socastee is idle on Friday, while North Myrtle Beach will play host to Green Sea-Floyds.
Loris (3-1) also stayed at its previous spot, No. 8 in Class AA, after its bye week. The Lions will play Georgetown at home on Friday night.
Carvers Bay (3-1) moved up two spots in Class A following that victory over the Bulldogs. The Bears will play at home Friday against another higher-class team, St. James.
