Indians earn spot in final rankings

TIFTON — After the Irwin County Indians ended their football season in the semifinals with their best record in 14 years, they have been recognized in the final rankings.

The Associated Press, in its combined private and public Class A poll, ranked the Indians No. 7. They are the third highest public school ranked, trailing state champion Marion County (2nd) and runner-up Charlton County (6th).

Score Atlanta, who divides their rankings, rewarded them even more. They ranked Irwin 2nd, even ahead of Charlton, who knocked them out of the playoffs. Irwin beat them in the regular season. Marion again held the top spot.

No other Tiftarea school received any votes in the AP poll.
