Teams learn futures in region tournaments

TIFTON — The Berrien boys and girls and Irwin County boys and girls and Worth County girls were scheduled to play games Monday night that determined the future of their hoops seasons.

Worth's girls went against Americus-Sumter, Irwin's boys battled Clinch County, their girls played Telfair County while both Berrien squads faced Brooks County.

If they were to win, they face more obstacles today.

Worth would face Westover in Albany. Irwin would be traveling to Homerville to play Wilcox County (boys) and Echols County (girls). Berrien's boys would be playing against Cook while their girls would play Early County.

A win today would put Worth and Berrien in the state tournament. Cook and Fitzgerald also have their futures on the line.

Cook's boys play either Berrien or Brooks while their girls face Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald's boys are matched up with Thomasville.

Because of their power rankings, Irwin's best shot of making state would be to win the region tournament.

That is likely not a problem for Turner County, whose boys and girls are the top seeds in the tourney and whose rankings are high.

As a result of being the No. 2 team out of 1-AAAA, the Worth County boys have already qualified for state, though they could fall as far as fourth in the tournament.
