List/Trivia/Quote: 13 region “championship games” to be held this week

LIST

Until 1990, when the GHSA expanded the state playoffs to two teams from each region, it was common for regions to hold two rounds of playoffs after the regular season with a true region championship. Those days are gone, but there are 13 games this week in which the winner is the region champion.

Answer: Etowah. beat Lassiter and they win the region. Lose and they could finish in a 4 way tie for second and lose the tie breakers to finish 5th.
