For Buford, Aaron Riner (215), Drew Gorman (138), Maddox McArthur (132), Kieron McCormack (126), Ryland Ibold (120) and DJ Clarke (113) have chances for championships for the Wolves.

South Effingham (158.5 points) leads by 50 points over Woodward Academy in the Class 6A championship and Ashton Anderson (285), Brandon Bringer (157), Gannon White (144), Eli Wood (138), Emilio Santana (120) and Christopher Hardeman (106) are leading the Mustangs.
