Hawkinsville will host Jenkins County in Class A public, while Dooly County will head to Claxton.Telfair County, which finished 17th in the public school power ratings and just missed out on a playoff spot, did not appeal its rating.
Tattnall (9-1) finished fifth in the power ratings but slipped to the No. 7 seed because lower-rated region champions Prince Avenue and Eagle’s Landing Christian were moved ahead of the Trojans according to GHSA rules. A win over Pinecrest (7-3) could send Tattnall back to Aquinas, which beat the Trojans 49-21 last week for the Region 7-A title. Aquinas hosts St. Francis in the first round.
Both FPD (7-3) and Stratford (6-4) will travel for quarterfinal games should they win their playoff openers.
Hawkinsville (9-1) is seeded fourth in the public school bracket and will host Charlton County or Lincoln County in the quarterfinals with a win over Jenkins County. Dooly County (7-3) could face nearby Irwin County in the quarterfinals with a win over Claxton (7-3).
