The races for the top four seeds for the Region 2-AA girls and boys basketball are tight.
Bryan County’s girls and
Woodville-Tompkins’ undefeated boys have the No. 1 seed wrapped up with two region games left against winless Bryan County in Savannah yesterday and Jeff Davis in Hazlehurst Friday.
The Bryan County girls, also undefeated, could be tied by Swainsboro but it is highly unlikely. The Lady Redskins traveled to Savannah Tuesday to face a strong Woodville-Tompkins team but Friday they face Bacon County at home and should take an easy win to sew up the top seed.
On the boys side, four teams are fighting it out for the 2, 3 and 4 seeds. Vidalia has the upper hand at 9-3, Swainsboro is close behind at 8-4, and Jeff Davis and Metter are tied for fourth at 7-5.
Vidalia played Tuesday night and this Friday night has a crucial matchup with Metter in Metter.
Swainsboro faced a tough Metter team last night and travels to cross-county rival Toombs County Friday.
Jeff Davis had Bacon County last night and faces Woodville-Tompkins at home Friday.
Metter, with Swainsboro and Vidalia left, has the toughest road to get a top 4 seed.
On the girls side, Swainsboro and Woodville-Tompkins are neck-and-neck for the No. 2 and 3 spots. The Lady Tigers are 12-2 and the Lady Wolverines are 11-3.
Swainsboro will be favored to topple both Metter and Toombs to round out the season while Woodville-Tompkins had undefeated Bryan County last night and travels to Hazlehurst Friday.
Vidalia is 6-8, Jeff Davis 5-8 and Toombs 5-9. With a game against Swainsboro Friday night, Toombs probably won’t wind up in the top four. Vidalia has Toombs and Metter this week and has a good chance to win both games. Jeff Davis played St. Vincent’s Monday and Bacon Tuesday and was favored to win both games. But this Friday Woodville-Tompkins will be favored to keep the Lady Jackets out of the top four.
