Three of the seven No. 1 teams heading into the state playoffs took care of business and triumphed in their respective classifications. In Class AAAA, Buford captured its eighth consecutive state championship. Greenbrier was pushed to a deciding game by Cambridge in Class AAAAA before getting the job done. In Class A-Public, Georgia Military powered its way to the title while winning all of its tournament games by at least nine runs.

Like Buford, Calhoun also made a jump in classification but managed to go back-to-back with a victory in Class AAA after having prevailed in Class AA last year. Pope, which began the season unranked in Class AAAAAA and went into the postseason at No. 6, took home the winner’s trophy from Columbus. The Greyhounds ousted defending champion Collins Hill in the second playoff round, shut out previously top-ranked Lassiter in the tournament, then got the best of Hillgrove to win it all.

Heard County-previously No. 3 in Class AA-and Eagle’s Landing, ranked second in Class A-Private prior to the postseason, also won state championships.
