This shapes up to be a decisive weekend for several leagues in Class AAA.
Region 2-AAA boys: Central Macon and Carver Columbus are currently tied atop the standings at 8-2, but Central holds the tiebreaker based on sweeping both regular-season games. But Central won't nail down first place unless it can beat third-place Peach County in the season finale. Peach is coming off a win against Carver and would like to avenge its earlier 16-point loss to Central. If Peach beats Central, Carver will finish in first place.
Region 2-AAA girls: Peach County clinched first place on Tuesday with a 60-57 overtime win at Carver. Nausia Woolfork scored 28 for the Trojans (18-4). Peach will finish one game ahead of Southwest Macon and Pike County.
Region 4-AAA girls: Central Carroll (22-2) and Chapel Hill (19-4) are tied for first at 11-1. They split during the regular season. Central, led by senior Sherae Bonner, finishes the regular season with a road trip to Jackson. Chapel Hill is led by senior Erica Jones (16.7 points) and junior Alex Weems (13.1 points, 7.4 rebounds). The Panthers finish with a road game at Rockmart and a home game against Haralson County.
Region 4-AAA boys: Douglass can win the regular-season title if it beats Maynard Jackson on Friday and Haralson County on Saturday. A loss could turn the league into a quagmire, since Chapel Hill, Callaway and B.E.S.T. Academy all trail by one game in the loss column. Part of the equation will be settled tonight when B.E.S.T. hosts Callaway.
Region 6-AAA boys: Cedar Grove will finish as the No. 1 seed if it beats Woodward Academy tonight. The Saints have won seven straight, but have two losses to Blessed Trinity and would lose the tiebreaker if they end up tied with the Titans.
Region 8-AAA girls: No. 6 Morgan County (18-3, 12-1) travels to Franklin County (17-5, 10-1) on Friday in what could determine the regular-season champion. Morgan won the first meeting 55-50 on Jan. 10 and would clinch first place with a win. Frankin, winner of six straight, closes the season on Saturday against defending region champion North Oconee, the region's third-place team.
