It should come to no surprise that Riverwood hoisted the trophy in Class AAAAA. Wins over Dalton and McIntosh were statement victories as the Raiders peaked at the right time and finished off their season with a 2-0 shutout of Northgate.
Right when it seemed the balance of power had shifted to Hall County, DeKalb County stole it away. In Class AAAA & AAA, Johnson-Gainesville and East Hall entered as favorites. Instead, it was St. Pius and Decatur spoiling the party.
