North Hall (40.5) is at the top of the Class AAA standings after the first day of competition and if Sonoraville wants to defend its title from last season, the Phoenix, with 34 points and second in the standings, will have to come from behind. Jackson County (29.5), Jefferson (24) and Pike County (24) are chasing the leaders.
Chattooga dominated the Class AA competition and holds at 57.5 lead entering the second day of the tournament and it looks that -- for the first time since 2015 -- Social Circle will not be the Class AA champion after just a 27-point performance in the opening rounds. Dade County (33) is second in the standings followed Oglethorpe County (32), Social Circle and Elbert County (26).
Six-time defending champion Commerce leads Class A with a 40-point team total. However, Irwin County, with 36 points, is not far behind with Mount Pisgah (33) Trion (26) and Holy Innocents’ (23) chasing.
