Four APS Teams to Compete in the State Basketball Quarterfinals on Wednesday

by talkupaps

The Maynard Jackson girls will host the Griffin Bears in the Georgia High Schools Association basketball quarterfinals, Wednesday at 6 p.m.

Four Atlanta Public Schools (APS) basketball teams – two boys and two girls – are still alive in the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) state basketball playoffs, and will compete in the quarterfinal round on Wednesday.

The Maynard Jackson girls (23-2) are still in the hunt to return to the Class AAAAA title game after defeating Wayne County, the No. 3 seed from Region 2, 55-41, last Wednesday. The Jaguars are the only APS team that will host its quarterfinal game, as Griffin (Griffin-Spaulding County), the top seed from Class AAAAA-Region 3, will visit on Wednesday at 6 p.m. Maynard Jackson won a coin toss that was held to decide which team would host the game because both are region champions.

The Carver boys (17-13) stayed red hot and won their sixth consecutive game last Thursday, defeating Dutchtown (Henry County) in the second round, 66-57. The Panthers will play at Fayette County, the No. 1 seed from Class AAAAA-Region 3, at 7 p.m., in Wednesday’s quarterfinal after losing the coin toss.

The South Atlanta boys (26-1) are still steamrolling through the post season after taking down Butler (Richmond County), 82-70, last Thursday. The Hornets lost their coin toss as well and will travel to Washington County, the No. 1 seed from Class AA-Region 3, for their quarterfinal game at 7 p.m.

The Mays girls (19-9) destroyed Greenbriar (Columbia County), 81-28 on Wednesday. The Raiders will hit to road to face Winder-Barrow (Barrow County), the Class AAAAAA-Region 8 champion, in the quarterfinals at 6:30 p.m.

Unfortunately, the season came to an end last Wednesday for two APS teams:

The Douglass girls (18-8) were defeated by Laney (Richmond County), the Region 4 champs, 76-61, while the South Atlanta girls (12-12) lost to Bryan County, the top seed from Region 2, 72-44.
