Garinger High’s soccer team moves to No. 1 in the Observer’s Sweet 16 soccer poll, and very few Garinger teams -- in any sport -- have ever ascended to the top spot.

The Wildcats soccer team began the season at No. 2, which is where they were ranked for much of last season. Garinger (3-0-1) had a 0-0 tie with former No. 1 Hough Wednesday. The Wildcats play No. 4 Charlotte Catholic Tuesday at home.

Three new teams joined the poll this week. Each is unbeaten. Lake Norman (3-0), Gastonia’s Forestview High (3-0) and Statesville (3-0) are all in the poll this week.
