A LETTER FROM THE DIRECTOR

Greetings, GHSA Basketball Fans: Welcome to the GHSA Basketball championships. The players, coaches and cheerleaders from these competing schools have put in many hours of work to prepare them for this event. It is my hope that you will appreciate the performances that you will see in the pressure packed world of post-season basketball. The Georgia High School Association thanks you for your support of high school basketball throughout the season. Spectators are a very important part of high school athletics in general, and this is especially true for the school for which you are cheering. We do want to remind you that good sportsmanship is an essential element of high school athletics, and today is no exception. Be positive in your support of all the participants. Behind the scenes of this great event is a group of hard-working volunteers who will donate many hours of work this week to enhance this experience for our participants. The GHSA office staff has been working for many weeks on the details that make this event special. The quality of GHSA events such as this one is made possible through the help of corporate partners whose ads are displayed in this program and around the arena. The GHSA thanks these fine companies, and we encourage you to support them whenever possible. People throughout the state of Georgia (and in parts of surrounding states) will be able to share in this experience through the television production provided by Georgia Public Broadcasting. The GHSA thanks GPB for their fine work. You may also enjoy these games in the future by availing yourselves of the “on-demand� options found on www.ghsa.tv.

The Arena At Gwinnett Center Macon Coliseum


GWINNETT CENTER

The Arena at Gwinnett Center is located in Duluth, Ga., which is 20 miles north of Atlanta. The Arena has been open for seven years and has had tremendous success in a short period of time. The Arena was nominated for the 2005 Pollstar Arena of the Year Award. The Arena was constructed with the patrons in mind so there is truly not a bad seat in the house. Events can be held to accommodate groups from 3,500 in an intimate theater-style setting up to 13,000 for a major concert or sporting event. As a result, The Arena provides the best possible environment for experiencing a wide range of events.

THE 2010 GHSA CHAMPIONSHIP VENUES

THE ARENA AT

The Arena has hosted many events over the last seven years, including Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay, The Eagles, Bon Jovi, George Strait, Martina McBride, The American Idol Tour, Stars on Ice, The Wiggles, last weekend’s SEC Women’s Basketball Tournament and many more. It is also the home of the Gwinnett Gladiators hockey team and before the Arena Football League shut down last year it hosted the Georgia Force.

Along with hosting these national shows, The Arena prides itself in hosting local community events. Along with the Georgia High School Basketball Championships, The Arena has held the GHSA Wrestling Championships, and the first and second rounds of the NCAA Division I Women’s Championship Basketball Tournament. The Arena at Gwinnett Center would like to thank everyone who has made the facility such a success over the past seven years. For more information regarding events, please visit www.gwinnettcenter.com.

THE MACON

COLISEUM

The 9,252-capacity Macon Coliseum is the entertainment center for Macon and Middle Georgia’s 30 surrounding counties. Built in 1968, it was the first facility of its size and type in the state and has housed full-house crowds for such greats as Elvis, The Jacksons, Billy Joel, Reba McEntire, Kenny Chesney, Elton John, and of course, Georgia high school basketball! In addition to concerts and family shows, the Coliseum is the perfect site for a variety of events from conventions and trade shows to ice shows, circuses and just about any other sporting or entertainment event you can imagine. And the location just can’t be beat. Located in the heart of Georgia, just 80 miles south of Atlanta and two miles off of I-75, more than two-thirds of Georgia’s population lives within one hour of the facility. Looking for something to do during our event’s downtime? Not to worry. Welcome to Macon, one of the most historic, hospitable, happening places in the South. It is a place with all the bustle of a big metropolis and all the charm of a small Southern town. Without a doubt, we have it all — from shopping and symphonies to professional sporting events, theaters, museums, golf, historical tours and top-notch eateries!

Area highlights include:

• More than 4,000 hotel rooms and 200 restaurants, all close by; • One of the largest malls in the southeastern U.S.; • More historic sites on the National Register of Historic Places than any other city in Georgia; • Museums galore, including the Georgia Music Hall of Fame, the Museum of Arts and Sciences, the Harriet Tubman African-American Museum, and the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame Museum.

estlake has breezed into the semifinals by winning its three tournament games by an average of 20 points. In the quarterfinals, Lions senior Marcus Thornton scored 18 points, while teammate Tony Jacobs added 16 to lead the team over Stephenson, 75-48. Their Final Four opponent has had a much tougher road. Central Gwinnett had to defeat perennial power Wheeler and No. 1 seed McEachern to reach its destination. Sophomore sensation Jordan Adams led the Black Knights with 32 points in the win over McEachern. The key question in this matchup is, can Central Gwinnett’s defense slow down Westlake’s offense? Westlake has averaged 73 points in the tournament, while blowing out opponents with regularity. The Black Knights defense has given up just 58 points per game in the tournament, so it should be interesting to see if they can hold the Lions to around that number. Getting Thornton in foul trouble may be another key strategy.

W

NEWTON RAMS VS. MILTON EAGLES ewton reached the Final Four on a dramatic buzzerbeating 3-pointer by Derrick Henry to halt Groves’ 27-game winning streak, 60-59. The shot put the Rams into the semis for the first time in five years. Henry’s three capped off a 10-point comeback and was the highlight of his 31 points. It was the second dramatic win in a row after the team beat Lowndes 62-59 in overtime in the second round. What might have been even more dramatic, and at the same time controversial, was Milton’s 53-52 win over Norcross. After the final buzzer had sounded, the referees conferred and decided to call a foul on Norcross. That put junior Julian Royal on the line and he coldly hit both of his free throws to give the Eagles the win. If this game is even close to how the tournament has gone so far for both of these teams, then the fans at Gwinnett Arena should be in for a treat.

REDAN RAIDERS VS. MILTON EAGLES

R

edan is back in the semis for the fifth time in six seasons after the Lady Raiders torched Bradwell Institute 71-50 in the quarterfinals. Junior Aneesah Daniels scored a game-high 18 points for the Lady Raiders, who are now on a 57-game winning streak. Senior Alisha Andrews canned four 3-pointers and had 17 points in the win. Redan (30-0) will face Milton (225), which defeated Mill Creek in the quarterfinals, 5447. Nikki Dixon paced the Lady Eagles with 25 points in the victory. Milton will have its hands full against a Redan team that has not been seriously challenged all season. The Lady Raiders have won their games by an amazing average of 19 points per game this year. In the state tournament, they have been even more dominating, winning by an average of 22 points per game. Milton is one of two AAAAA schools to place both its boys and girls teams in this year’s semifinals.

WESTLAKE LIONS VS. NORCROSS BLUE DEVILS

estlake is the other school with both teams in the Final Four. The Lady Lions were led by the trio of Simone Johnson, Sharnea Boykin and Danielle Spencer in the win over Stephenson, 63-53. Spencer had a game-high 17 points, 15 rebounds and four blocks. Boykin and Johnson both had 13 points apiece to go along with Boykin’s 13 rebounds and six blocked shots. Norcross played its way into the semifinals by beating Campbell, 65-54. Kaela Davis might be driving the bus to Gwinnett Arena after all her drives to the basket in the last moments of the game. Up 53-50, Davis took it to the hoop three straight times in the final two minutes and converted for six of her game-high 24 points. Briana Jordan chipped in with 16 points in the win. It should be a compelling game between two teams that have been in the top 10 in the polls the whole season.

AAAA BOYS ROSTERS

The Arena At Gwinnett Center Macon Coliseum


iller Grove may be a young team with seven sophomores on the roster, but it’s hard not to anoint them as the favorites after their dominant performance in both the region and state tournaments. Donte Williams, one of the top post prospects in the state, provides some experience at the center position, averaging a double-double. Henry Brooks and Justin Colvin provide some more scoring punch. Tony Parker, a 6-9 sophomore, is perhaps the best of the Wolverines’ seven-man 10th-grade class and gives them another prolific presence in the paint. Richmond Academy has the best record of the bunch at 30-1, and the wound is still fresh from their defeat to Miller Grove in the state semifinals last season. Guards Don Quarles and Desmond Lofland provide much of the scoring from the backcourt. But dealing with Williams and Parker in the paint will be difficult for an undersized team.

M

MAYS RAIDERS VS. BAINBRIDGE BEARCATS loyd Mack has taken a core group at Mays from humble beginnings to the state semifinals over the past three years. Once a young and inexperienced team, the Raiders grew together with the help of Aloys Cabell, a dynamite point guard that averages close to 25 points per game. Junior Colin Cook is a big-time shot blocking presence, and there is plenty more talent to spread around in the form of players like Akilosose Olushina. Cabell and company will have their hands full when they face Devon Baulkman and a Bainbridge team that has won 20 consecutive games. Baulkman is a prolific scorer that dropped 33 points in the round of 16. His matchup with Cook will be a big one. Justin Harris can score as well from the small forward position. Baulkman has been a one-man wrecking crew all year, but several other Bearcats will have to emerge in order for Bainbridge beat a balanced Miller Grove team.

SOUTHWEST DEKALB PANTHERS VS. FOREST PARK PANTHERS

S

outhwest DeKalb avoided an upset to upstart Loganville in the quarters, but made it through to the semifinals to seek its third title in a row. The Lady Panthers have a load of talent on the roster behind an unbelievable senior class that features eight players that contribute heavily. Leading the way is Florida commit Kayla Lewis, but guard Alonda Rivers, forward Chancie Dunn and center Chyna Miley are all major talents as well for a team that has had its eyes on a state championship since November. Drawing the assignment of the juggernaut SWD team is Forest Park. Keep an eye Ashlee Cole, a dynamic point guard that can slice through a team’s defense by scoring or distributing. Jessica Anderson joins her to form a solid backcourt tandem that will give their opponents trouble. The guard play has carried Forest Park through the season, but Southwest may have an advantage in overall size and athleticism.

DUTCHTOWN BULLDOGS VS. NORTHWEST WHITFIELD BRUINS

D

utchtown, the champion of Region 4-AAAA, is in great form heading into its semifinal matchup. There’s a lot of talent to go around in the girls bracket, but lightning-quick point guard Brittney Strickland might be the best scorer of them all. She averaged 26 a game this season for Dutchtown to lead the team. It was Strickland’s twin sister Alyssa, however, who lead the Bulldogs with 19 in the quarterfinal win over Glenn Hills. Northwest Whitfield is back in the semis for the first time in 20 long years. The Bruins feature a balanced scoring attack. Baleigh Corey provides a steadying hand at point guard for a lineup that can score from any position. Her matchup with Cole could be one of the best of the semis. While Corey holds it down from the perimeter, Christy Robinson gets it done in the post. She has help, too, with 6-5 Quaneisha McCurty giving them elite size that Dutchtown will have trouble matching up with.

AAA PREVIEWS

NORTH HALL TROJANS VS. LAGRANGE GRANGERS enjie Wood, coach of the North Hall Trojans, has been to the Final Four before, though it was with the Johnson, Gainesville girls basketball team in 2005. This will be the Trojans’ first trip to the semifinals and seniors Robert Humphrey and Chase Syfan will try and get the Trojans two more wins to truly make North Hall history. Trevor Ross had eight points in the 53-49 win over Riverwood in the quarterfinals, and Robby Hill will be back after missing the Riverwood game. The Trojans will play undefeated LaGrange. Dionte Mains led the Grangers with 16 points in the 59-51 win over Dougherty in the quarterfinals. Mains is one of eight seniors that are experiencing their first success in the playoffs. Jamius Gunsby is a force down low in the post and fellow senior Antione Green lights things up from the backcourt. Finally, don’t sleep on the impact that undersized forward Qua Hardy provides.

COLUMBIA EAGLES VS. WESTOVER PATRIOTS

T

he Columbia Eagles managed to run away from Elbert County and have now reached the semifinals for the fifth straight season. The Eagles won the 2006 and 2008 titles, and came up short in the 2007 title game. The Eagles might just make it three titles in five years with JerShon Cobb at shooting guard. The future Northwestern Wildcat is joined by Chris Grier in the backcourt and the frontcourt is anchored by 6-8 center Darnelius “Tank” Sessions. If the Eagles are to advance to a fourth title game in five years, they must beat Westover. The Patriots knocked off the defending state champions in South Atlanta and now the Pats will need even more from guards Anthony Ball and Malcolm Sapp as well as forward Onochie Ochie. Chris Wheeler is also a threat to explode, as he did for 32 against Cairo earlier this season. Head coach Dallas Smith had his team in the finals last year, but this year he wants to win that game.

CARVER, ATLANTA PANTHERS VS. KENDRICK CHEROKEES

C

arver, Atlanta advanced to the semifinals after besting Franklin County 43-38. For head coach Cedrick King, his Lady Panthers have won at least 20 games in back-toback seasons. Carver will start play in Macon against topranked and undefeated Kendrick, which beat Spalding 6128 in the quarterfinals. The Carver Panthers have a standout junior in Bria Dorsey and two outstanding freshmen that get significant minutes. Meanwhile, Kendrick has a number of scorers that can explode at any time for points. Simone High, Janae Merritt and Deshanti Lewis all reached double digits for Kendrick in the second round against Peach County, and with their win over Spalding, the Lady Cherokees improved to 30-0. This is the third trip to the Final Four in four years and the team is seeking its second title in three years.

LAGRANGE GRANGERS VS. COLUMBIA EAGLES

L

aGrange beat Northside, Columbus 66-64 on an Arneshia Williams basket with 7.6 seconds left. Williams finished the quarterfinal game with 16 points, and in the semis, expect Williams to be joined in the scorer’s book by Angel Penn and Steara Mitchell. The Lady Grangers, the Region 2-AAA three-seed, will play Columbia, which beat East Hall 46-17. The Lady Eagles led from nearly the jump in the quarterfinals against East Hall as 6-5 senior center Akila McDonald scored 11 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, with Zuri Frost adding 10 points. Columbia will be difficult to top on the boards as they have a knack for finding the rebound. The Eagles defense really turned it up against East Hall in the quarters, shutting out East Hall for an entire quarter. The Eagles have won 19 straight for head coach Chantay Frost. The semifinal may come down to whether LaGrange can force enough turnovers from Columbia, leading to fast-break points.

THE NEW WORLD OF GPB

t took Teya Ryan, who has been running Georgia Public Broadcasting for only 11 months, just a few days to realize how important high school athletics is in the state of Georgia. Her statewide network Friday night will begin 22 hours of live broadcasts of girls and boys state basketball championships from both Gwinnett Arena and the Macon Coliseum. Throw on top of it the 12 hours GPB did for the football championships back in December, and the public network’s commitment to sports matches any around the country. “It’s an important thing to do,” said Ryan (pictured here), a former CNN veteran and Emmy Award-winner and now the president and executive director of GPB. “I don’t think it’s a luxury. I think it’s a responsibility. Clearly in Georgia we love sports and we love high school sports. There are a variety of reasons to like high school sports. It’s exciting, it helps create terrific citizens, it’s a wonderful way to bring communities together, and it’s a wonderful exercise; high school sports are just a win-win. It’s a win for the kids, it’s a win for the schools, it’s a win for the parents, and it’s a win for the spectators. I think that because public media’s sole purpose is community involvement, having an involvement with high school sports is right up our alley.”

I

PARTNERING WITH THE GHSA GPB, working together with the Georgia High School Association, began airing high school semifinal football games back in 1997. For many years, the state football semifinals were played at the Dome and all 10 games over two days were televised. The next weekend, GPB would air two of the title

The Arena At Gwinnett Center Macon Coliseum

games at the schools. The GHSA decided to move the semifinals back to the high school stadiums and the finals to the Georgia Dome two years ago, and all five classification finals are now on GPB. The 10 boys and girls basketball finals have been televised live since 1998. All the games are webcasted live on GPB.org. When Ryan walked into GPB, a deal with the GHSA was already in place. She said, “My first reaction was, who is the smart person that made this happen? That certainly was my predecessor Nancy Hall. And I think it was a very smart move because the goal of public media is to reach out into the community and reflect that community back in on itself and support what’s happening in that community. It’s the one kind of media that can support the community.” NUMBERS SOME OF THE BEST The ratings have been strong. GPB was the most-watched public station in the country in prime time and full day during both days of the football championships back in December. GPB had a 42 percent increase in ratings from its coverage a year ago, with an estimated 428,600 Georgia households watching the live games. The production of the games is similar to what ESPN brings to college campuses on GameDay. It is a high-quality production, led by veteran producer Tom Vardase and a group of experienced directors, cameramen, engineers and announcers. Said Ryan, “I was impressed by the resources I found that we gave to it. I would like to increase that. We are certainly going to continue to make a big commitment to putting the right resources in place. For one, audiences are sophisticated these days. They’re used to seeing sports in a

March 10-13 2010


LOOKING TO OTHER MEDIA Already, GPB is moving towards a stronger multimedia platform when it comes to covering sports and the championships. A mainstay at the network has been the high school show Prep Sports Plus, born in 1991, but for the second straight year they have been webcasting live football and basketball games as well as hosting web chats during games, and have increased high school sports reports on the radio network. At these championships, you will be able to sit and watch the games with a computer on your lap, chatting about the game on GPB.org as well as getting updated scores. GPB handling the high school games is an obvious choice due to their statewide coverage. “Because Georgia is such a large state, the largest east of the Mississippi, it makes us, GPB, a powerhouse because we can reach all corners of the state with our television and/or radio, and then online,” Ryan said. “We’ve become the powerhouse just by the nature of how large Georgia is. I think it becomes an interesting public media system because of the variety of the state, meaning the state is so different from top to bottom and east to west. There is such diversity in the state as far as land, people and sensibilities that I think it makes it not only a challenge, but certainly an exciting opportunity. There are really terrific state public media groups around the country but they are in smaller states.” A GROWING COMPANY GPB is also changing the way they do business. While they are state-supported, they have to become more entrepreneurial, especially with today’s tough economic conditions. The company is becoming more streamlined, more mainstream when compared to the GPB of old. “As much as we are a state authority, we are a media company,” Ryan said. “I think that we have to first and foremost look at GPB as a significant, and maybe the most significant, media company for Georgians because of our reach and because of really what I call the inheritance of purpose. And I think the inheritance of purpose gets at the heart of what public media is. In other words, we’ve inherited responsibility to the community and we take that very seriously. During a legislative season, GPB has a

March 10-13 2010

strong sense because some of our budget, not all of it by any means, is dependent on the state, but at the same time the truth is we are a media company. We have to have that same entrepreneurial sensibility that any media company has. We have to look for new ways of doing things. We have to look for efficiencies. We have to listen to our audience and make sure we’re delivering what they’re interested in and what will help them in their lives. The good news about this media company is in a way it doesn’t have a margin of pressure. It doesn’t have shareholders. It has a community. I don’t have to do things because they make money, I have to do things to make sure that I’m responding to the community and helping the community out. That doesn’t mean that I can be sloppy and I can waste money. It just means that I have a whole different set of purposes and goals with what I do.” THE FUTURE LOOKS GOOD So what are we going to see from GPB for the next six months? “You’re going to see an overall rise of quality in all that we do,” Ryan said. “I think, significantly, we will see our entire focus on original programming. That means cross-platform radio, road television, web, is all about localism, meaning all about Georgia. I think that the right model is to cover Georgia. Whether we’re doing that in sports or education or in our history, whatever it is, it’s about us. It’s about the people of Georgia. I think that what you’ll begin to see is that much more programming on all of our platforms relate to and are about the people of Georgia.” And of course, more high school sports. “High school sports is about the whole state,” Ryan said. “That what’s so wonderful about it. We don’t just play football in Atlanta. That’s what I love about high school sports. We can reach deep into all the communities … I think it’s also more about our kids. It’s not just about the competition. It’s about how they grow as human beings. It’s how they learn, how to work as a team. It’s how they learn to overcome certain challenges. It’s how they reach higher. It’s how they become their personal best. I think that’s why high school sports is so important because we’re watching kids, literally before our eyes, develop and change and grow. In a way, high school sports becomes more than just the sport. It becomes about the human beings we’re developing and we’re sending off into the world. That kind of story, that kind of full story is really part of the mission of public media to relay out.” And GPB will be there to tell those stories, whether it’s televising or webcasting a championship game, a segment on Prep Sports Plus, or a story or blog on GPB.org. Said Ryan, “That’s what’s so wonderful, is that we can encompass all of this. And you know what, frankly, sports is fun. Sports are part of why you get up in the morning. You want to root for your team. You want to root for your kid. It’s exciting. It’s fun.” By Score Atlanta’s I.J. Rosenberg (ijrosenberg@scoreatl.com).

THE NEW WORLD OF GPB

certain way, whether it’s high school or college or professional. Just because we’re public media doesn’t mean we don’t want to work on a different level. We want to be at that professional level. We want people to love coming to us and make it look like they’re used to seeing.’’ Ryan’s approach will eventually mean covering championships in other sports, and she added, “I would like to cover as many championships in as many sports as possible throughout the state. I think that we want to recognize that different kids love different sports. We don’t want to restrict ourselves.”

AA PREVIEWS

THOMASVILLE BULLDOGS VS. JEFFERSON DRAGONS

LANEY WILDCATS VS. BUFORD WOLVES

he 2010 Class AA Final Four will have a new look to it this year, as GAC is the only team that reached the semifinals last season. But Laney, Thomasville and Jefferson have rightfully earned their spots and these four teams now have an equal chance to win the championship. Thomasville lost to Greene County in the second round of the tournament last year, but they are no strangers to the semifinals, as they advanced to the semifinal round in 2006. Trey Goiser is a player to watch for the Bulldogs, scoring 20 points in the quarterfinal game against Henry County. Football standout Fred Holton is another player that can do some damage for Thomasville. But Jefferson knows that the Bulldogs can make plays offensively and defensively, and they have the players that can match up with their attack. Darius Minor is as clutch as they come, scoring 11 fourth-quarter points to lead the Bulldogs over Callaway in the quarterfinals. J.J. Damons has also been a key player in the tournament.

t will be a rematch of last year’s semifinal contest, as Laney will try to get its revenge on Buford, which defeated the Wildcats and went on to win the state championship. But Laney looks stronger than last year’s squad and will be a tough opponent in the Macon Coliseum. Alexis Lester is the leader of the team and she led by example last week, scoring 26 points in the quarterfinal win against Thomasville. Mykala Jones is another player that Buford has to account for. Buford’s M.O. in the tournament so far has been playing great defense, and the Lady Wolves have been stingy; the team held Rabun County to only 28 points in the quarterfinals. Andraya Carter (widely considered one of the country’s top sophomores), Lacey Pass and Alysha Rudnik are three players that Laney has to focus on at all times.

T

LANEY WILDCATS VS. GREATER ATLANTA CHRISTIAN SPARTANS aney has been one of the hottest teams in the state, going undefeated since Jan. 19. The Wildcats also have one of the best offenses in the state, averaging 85 points per game. Jamie West is one of the key factors in the offensive attack as he scored 20 points in the win against McIntosh County Academy in the quarterfinals. Keith Walker and Corinthian Brown have also played well in the tournament. As good as Laney has been all year long, GAC has been downright dominant at times, having only one blemish on its schedule (that coming against an out-of-state opponent). The Spartans have blown through the tournament, defeating each opponent by at least 30 points or more. Senior Trent Wiedeman is one of the best basketball prospects in the state and junior Malcolm Brogdon is also a star for the Spartans. GAC is hungry for a state title after suffering a disappointing loss to Dublin in the semifinals last year.

VIDALIA INDIANS VS. GREATER ATLANTA CHRISTIAN SPARTANS fter losing to Greene County in the first round of the state tournament last year, Vidalia has been on a tear this season. In fact, the Lady Indians have not lost a game since last year. They have had no trouble with their tournament opponents so far, getting off to fast starts in their games. Shekinah Henry is a player to watch, as she scored 22 points in the win against Mitchell County in the quarterfinals. Courtney Williams is another player to keep an eye on, scoring 13 in the win. Vidalia is certainly one of the hottest teams in the state, but GAC is riding a wave of momentum into the semifinals as well. The Lady Spartans have won 14 consecutive games, and it’s the fifth time since 2001 that they have reached the semifinals. Sierra Lawrence is a great scorer for GAC, notching 22 points in the win against Blessed Trinity last week. Peyton Whitted and Chaney Means are also key players for the Gwinnett County private school.

Savannah Christian Raiders Red & White • 3-A Head Coach: Toy Byrd

The Arena At Gwinnett Center Macon Coliseum


t’s been a relatively easy tournament so far for Whitefield Academy, which has defeated opponents by scores of 78-39, 65-54 and 86-38 to reach the semifinals. The same cannot be said for Terrell County, which has won its three games by a combined nine points, including one-point victories in the second and third rounds. Whitefield is a big, athletic team that is looking for its second straight state title in Class A, and will rely on highly rated junior forward Kennard Backman to provide much of the offense. Backman scored a game-high 25 points in the quarterfinal victory over Commerce. For Terrell, which upset state powerhouse Wilkinson County in the quarters to reach the Final Four, Marquez Dotson is a dynamic offensive threat and hit the game-winning shot in the second round. Terel Hall assisted Dotson on that play, and hit two game-sealing free throws of his own to ensure the last victory.

WILCOX COUNTY PATRIOTS VS. WESLEYAN WOLVES

W

ilcox County will go for the football/basketball sweep when the Patriots take on Wesleyan in another North-South matchup. Wilcox boasts sensational junior swingman Nick Marshall, a football hero as a quarterback and a scoring machine for the Patriots. He scored 55 points in the first round and 29 in the second. Quez Mohogany and Lonnie Outlaw can also fill it up for Wilcox, which is 26-2 and unbeaten since Jan. 3. For Wesleyan, which defeated Gwinnett County rival Providence Christian 65-40 in the quarterfinals, a second boys title in three years would be a great achievement. The Wolves have only one player that got on the floor in the 2008 Class AA championship win, but experienced guards Wes Caver and Andrew Frerking run the offense and hit efficiently from the outside. Wesleyan reaches Macon as a No. 4 seed after losing twice in the Region 7 tournament. This will be a matchup of Wilcox County’s athleticism against the shooting prowess of Wesleyan.

SAVANNAH CHRISTIAN RAIDERS VS. SW ATLANTA CHRISTIAN WARRIORS avannah Christian defeated the odds when it dispatched region rival Calvary Day in the quarterfinals in a battle of Savannah private schools. The team had lost all three previous meetings with Calvary on the season, but Randi Friess and Adrienne DeFillippis threw in 14 points apiece to take down the 28-2 Cavaliers. Friess was clutch in the final minute of her team’s 50-41 win last Saturday, hitting four free throws in a row to ice the victory. Next up for SCPS is a Final Four matchup with Southwest Atlanta Christian, which comes into the contest fresh off a dramatic win over an excellent Paideia squad in the quarters, 42-38. Shavontae Naylor scored twice in the last 10 seconds of the game to spark the win, hitting a jumper and then stealing the inbounds pass and laying it in. Southwest comes into the matchup on an 18-game winning streak after losing four consecutive games in December to teams from higher classifications.

TAYLOR COUNTY VIKINGS VS. WESLEYAN WOLVES he Wesleyan girls basketball program has been as dominant as any sports team in the state, winning six state titles since 2002 and reaching the semifinals nine out of the last 10 years. Head coach Jan Azar has another loaded roster that includes sharpshooter Erin Hall, who is signed with Wake Forest. The senior had 18 points to lead her team to a 92-45 blowout win over St. Francis in the quarterfinals. The Wolves may be the favorite heading into the semis, but Taylor County is looking for some glory of its own. In overall state titles, the Lady Vikings hold the advantage with an unbelievable 10 crowns to Wesleyan’s six. The team has had a stellar season, racking up an impressive 29-1 record with the only loss coming to AAA Peach County. Taylor has a weapon in Shaniqua Holston, who went off for 32 points in the 60-49 win over previously unbeaten Emanuel County Institute in the quarterfinals.

A WORD WITH DR. RALPH SWEARNGIN

core Atlanta’s Alex Ewalt had the chance to speak with GHSA Executive Director Dr. Ralph Swearngin last Thursday to discuss S some of the major issues facing athletics in the State of Georgia. Here is a transcript of their conversation: Alex Ewalt: The weather has been pretty bad for most of this school year, with the heavy rain in the fall and ice and snow in the past few months. What are some of the challenges you’ve faced? Ralph Swearngin: I think the biggest challenges have been the fact that we have so much diversity in our state, so some areas get it worse than others. But this year, it seemed like there was a wider area of people that had to deal with the snowy weather than in times past. AE: What were some of the issues you encountered in the last few weeks with winter weather affecting the basketball playoffs? RS: We had situations where it was just obvious that everything was going to get shut down. Then, the question on everyone’s mind was when was everything able to reopen. And also you have to consider the fact that whenever a superintendent has to send a school bus out at 6:30 or 7 o’clock in the morning, it’s a totally different condition than if you’re going to be traveling at 5 or 6 o’clock at night. Some school systems have a rule where if school is shut down for the day, everything is shut down. I think we really feel quite fortunate to have gotten the second round in as early as we did. I think another factor is that a lot of the weather [last] week came in the middle of the day. And so we really weren’t sure if a lot of places were going to cancel their evening activities until lunchtime or later, but everyone cooperated very well for us.

AE: The GHSA had decided last year to extend the reclassification cycle to four years instead of two, but ultimately you opted to stay with the two-year cycle. What were the reasons behind that? RS: We proposed going to four years to put some stability into the process. But as we got to working more and more and got to listening to what’s coming down the road in education, we began to see that stability wasn’t possible in a very unstable situation. And things were changing so rapidly that we couldn’t try to predict where things were going to be, populationwise, down the road. We’ve got school systems right now that are trying to make decisions about possibly closing some schools, so they’ll have to shuffle people around. If we were trying to get something that was going to work for four years, that would have been close to impossible. AE: With all the fluctuation of enrollments across the state, it has presented a number of challenges for you and the GHSA … RS: We’re having some issues in several communities about school boards having to come back and revise their plans. We have people having to make decisions about how to use their facilities that make the most sense financially. Because of some laws that are being written or have been written, we are trying to make sure that students are not in portable classrooms. And so the school boards are having to shuttle teachers and students and all kinds of things around. They make plans a year or so ago but now they’re finding they have to go to plan B because of the problems. AE: In the latest GHSA newsletter, you addressed the financial issues that some schools are facing due to the economy. There are many school systems that will be tempted to cut activities and personnel. What do you see happening here? RS: I think that around the state there are school boards that are looking at cutting the number of coaches, or at least the number of coaching supplements that they’re able to give. There are a few systems that are talking about — and I haven’t heard anyone that’s made this decision yet — possibly cutting out some of their junior varsity programs. More and more, athletic programs are having to pay for transportation out of the athletic budget, which has not always been done in the past. I think some of the schools are thinking about not scheduling quite as many games as they have, especially when they are in sports where each game doesn’t bring in much revenue but involves expenditures.

The Arena At Gwinnett Center Macon Coliseum

AE: What can you tell us about the direction of the GHSA over the next couple of years? RS: I think that we are looking at the potential down the road of the 2012-14 cycle. We’re having a difficult time finding the right region alignments in south Georgia in AAAA and AAAAA, there just are fewer and fewer schools. We are again trying to address the financial issues, if there’s some way we can have people play closer to home in the regular season. There are some people who are looking at the possibility of an additional classification. And there are a lot of mixed reviews on that. A lot of people say that if you add another classification, you spread schools out and there’s more distance between them. But these are all things where we want to take another year, year and a half to correct some of these issues. Ewalt can be reached at aewalt@scoreatl.com.
