Playoff Scenarios: Class AAAAAA

Each day this week, GHSF Daily will examine the playoff scenarios for every region in the state, beginning today with Class AAAAAA (Class A will not be included because the playoff fields for the public- and private-school tournaments will be determined by the power rankings). This is not meant to include every possibility, because tiebreaker procedures vary from region to region and are not widely publicized. Instead, we'll focus on the most likely or least complicated scenarios.


Region 1

Camden County clinched the region title with its 24-7 victory over Lowndes on Friday, and the Wildcats will be the No. 1 seed regardless of the outcome of their game against Colquitt County this week. Lowndes will be the No. 2 seed. A Valdosta victory over Coffee would make Valdosta the No. 3 seed and Colquitt County No. 4. Coffee still has a shot, but the Trojans must beat Valdosta.


Region 2

Lovejoy and Newton have clinched the top two positions, and Alcovy has clinched a playoff berth. The winner of the Rockdale County-Druid Hills game will be the other playoff team. If Rockdale County wins, the Bulldogs would be the No. 4 seed and Alcovy would be No. 3. If Druid Hills wins, the Red Devils would be the No. 3 seed and Alcovy No. 4 (unless Alcovy upsets Lovejoy, which would then give Alcovy third place).


Region 3

Hughes clinched the first region title and No. 1 seed in the program's short history with its 17-13 victory over Tri-Cities on Friday. The winner of this week's Newnan-East Coweta game will take second place, and the loser will be No. 3. The winner of Friday's game between Douglas County and Tri-Cities will be the No. 4 team.


Region 4

McEachern has clinched the region title and No. 1 seed. North Cobb (which plays Campbell), Marietta (vs. Harrison) and Hillgrove (vs. McEachern), can clinch the second, third and fourth seeds with victories this week. Hillgrove can earn a playoff spot even if it loses to McEachern if South Cobb loses to Pebblebrook or North Cobb beats Campbell. South Cobb can still make it if it wins, Hillgrove wins and North Cobb loses.


Region 5

Lassiter has clinched the No. 1 seed, and Walton has wrapped up second place. The No. 3 seed will be the winner of the game between Woodstock and Milton, which has clinched at least a playoff berth. Etowah can take fourth place if it upsets Lassiter and Woodstock loses. However, barring an upset by Woodstock or Etowah, Wheeler would finish as the No. 4 seed if it beats last-place Cherokee.


Region 6

Johns Creek, West Forsyth and Alpharetta are tied for first place and have clinched playoff berths. The region's other playoff team will be the winner of the Chattahoochee-Centennial game. West Forsyth will be the region champion if it beats sixth-place Lambert. If West Forsyth loses, the winner of Friday's Johns Creek-Alpharetta game will take the title.


Region 7

Norcross has clinched the region title, and North Gwinnett will be the No. 2 seed. The winner of the Collins Hill-Mill Creek game will be the No. 3 seed, and the loser will be the No. 4 seed.


Region 8

Parkview, South Gwinnett, Grayson and Brookwood have clinched playoff berths and play each other this week (Parkview vs. South Gwinnett, Grayson vs. Brookwood). Here are the four possible outcomes and the seeding they would produce:

*If Parkview, Grayson win: 1. Parkview, 2. Grayson, 3. South Gwinnett, 4. Brookwood

*If Parkview, Brookwood win: 1. Parkview, 2. Grayson, 3. South Gwinnett, 4. Brookwood

*If South Gwinnett, Grayson win: 1. Grayson, 2. South Gwinnett, 3. Parkview, Brookwood

*If South Gwinnett, Brookwood win: 1. South Gwinnett, 2. Parkview, 3. Grayson, Brookwood
