The Socastee boys soccer team made a nice jump in the state coaches poll following its lopsided victory over then-No. 1 Myrtle Beach last week.
The Braves moved up to No. 2 in Class AAA while Myrtle Beach dropped to No. 4. The two teams, as well as fellow region squad St. James (No. 12 in this week's poll) are still jostling for positioning for the playoffs, which begin next week.
Each of those three teams have two Region VII-AAA games remaining. That includes the Sharks' game at Socastee on Wednesday.
