Toombs Co came in fourth place in the team standings. Jefferson was first, Bremen came in second, Social Circle third, Greater Atlanta Christian was fifth and Vidalia came in sixth place.

“ I could not have dreamed of a better season for my first year as a head coach at Toombs Co. I am very proud of my team and the four seniors that won state championships. To cap the season off with four state champions on one team in Class AA is almost unheard of especially in this area. The guys deserve all the credit in the world.” Coach Bradley Benton said.
