Aynor runs over Waccamaw

Aynor defeated Waccamaw 38-14 Friday.

And then there were three.

One week after five Horry County football programs were included in the state media polls, Carolina Forest (Class 5A) and Green Sea Floyds (Class A) each dropped out of the rankings. The Trojans were eliminated from playoff contention with a loss against Johnsonville. However, Carolina Forest rolled over Socastee and improved to 3-1 on the season. It wasn’t enough to prevent Boiling Springs from taking over the No. 10 spot in the state’s biggest classification.

That left Myrtle Beach, North Myrtle Beach and Aynor as the lone representatives from Horry County. 

The Seahawks remained the unanimous No. 1 in Class 4A; they received all 14 first-place votes. North Myrtle Beach jumped two spots to No. 3 overall. Aynor moved up two spots to No. 8 in Class 3A.
