Class 3A blog: Sandy Creek-Salem boys, Coahulla Creek-Sonoraville girls highlight weekend schedule

ajc.com

It’s a light weekend for the top-10 boys and girls teams in Class 3A with only two games scheduled between ranked teams. That doesn’t mean that other games lack interest as teams begin jockeying for seedings with the region tournaments only a month away.

On the boys side, top-ranked Sandy Creek will face Redan on Friday at 7:30 p.m. before meeting No. 6 Salem Saturday. The Patriots are on a four-game winning streak since losing to Newton 63-59 on Jan. 1. Sandy Creek beat Westminster 75-43 Tuesday to move to 4-0 in 5-3A.

For the girls, top-ranked Coahulla Creek will travel to No. 5 Sonoraville at 7 p.m. Friday. The Colts are coming off a 38-28 victory against North Murray on Tuesday. Sonoraville is looking to right the ship after losing to Rockmart 64-60 Tuesday.

Here is the schedule for the top-10 boys and girls programs, showing each team’s next three games. This schedule could – and likely will be – impacted by COVID-19 postponements and cancellations and will be updated each week.
