Both Northgate teams finished fourth in Region 5-AAAAAA and will be on the road, the boys at Harrison and the girls at Creekview.
Starr’s Mill took both Region 3-AAAAA crowns in last week’s tournament and will host the Eagle’s Landing boys and the Woodland-Stockbridge girls this week. Both McIntosh teams came in second in that region and will host the Woodland boys and the Jones County girls. Whitewater’s boys are seeded fourth and the girls are seeded third, both of whom play at Ola.
