PHS Lady DragonsThe Pepperell High Lady Dragons brought home the coveted region title from the region basketball tournament but all four county high schools will have representation in the 2014 State Basketball Playoffs.  The Lady Dragons overcame the loss of Junior Erin Wilder to defeat Calhoun High for the Region 7-AA title in girls basketball.  The younger of the Wilder sisters; sophomore, Madison Wilder, led the way with 15 points and senior Caroline Holbrook added a well timed 13 to help the Lady Dragons capture the title.  Pepperell will host Bowdon in the first round of the basketball playoffs on Friday at 6:30 p.m.

The Model Blue Devil boys also played for the region title but dropped a close game to the Calhoun boys on Tuesday.  Even though they fell just short in the title quest, Model's boys will still host a home playoff game as they take on Jordan High at 6 p.m. on Saturday at Model High School.  The Model girls will also be in the state playoffs but they will have to travel to Kendrick High in Columbus for a game at 6 p.m. on Friday.

Armuchee High's girls team also lost a valuable member of the team in senior JessAnn Nix as she was lost to injury in the region tournament.  The Lady Indians will regroup and travel to Manchester High School to play in the first round of the Class AA State Playoffs on Friday night at 6 p.m.

The Coosa High School boys will also be in the state playoffs.  The Eagles will travel to Columbus to play at Kendrick High on Saturday.  No time has been announced for the Coosa vs Kendrick game at this time.

In GHSA playoff games, admission for all games will be $7.00.  For the home games at Pepperell High and Model High, no employee I.D.s can be used for admission as only GHSA passes are honored for state playoff games.
