Both teams will host region foe Locust Grove on Senior Night, starting at 6 p.m.
It’s a big game for the Lady Jags — if they win and Rutland and Eagle’s Landing lose, they may slide their way into the second seed. The Jags have the second seed locked up, regardless of Monday’s game.
Thanks to the weather, the Region 4-AAA Tournament (held at Locust Grove High) will begin on Wednesday, Feb. 17.
Contrary to what was printed earlier, the Jags have not clinched a state berth. The top two teams in Region 4-AAA will not have a bye into the semifinals and an automatic berth in the Class AAA state playoffs this year.
Instead, the Jags (and the No. 1 seed South Atlanta Hornets) will start in the quarterfinals and they have to win one game to qualify for state.
The Jags, who finished as the second seed two years in a row, will play the winner of the 10 vs. 7 seeds game either on Thursday or Friday.
“We’ll just have to get this game against Locust Grove and then be ready to play who’s in front of us at the region tourney,” said Jags head coach Cecil Spear. “We hope to get a second straight state berth.”
