No. 1 Archer and No. 2 Harrison hold the slight advantage over No. 3 Collins Hill in Class AAAAAA thanks to strength of schedule playing out of state opponents.

They will battle with Harrison and new entry to the top ten, No. 10 Marietta, for the region title. The Lady Blue Devils scored a big win over 2A No. 6 Lovett, 55-45 in overtime.
