Class A Playoffs

Lincoln County, Athens Academy get No. 1 seeds

Public school Lincoln County and private school Athens Academy are the No. 1 seeds in the Class A brackets, released on Wednesday by the Georgia High School Association.


The GHSA is holding separate state championships for Class A public and private schools for the first time this year. The Class A playoffs begin on the weekend of Nov. 23-24.


Lincoln County will find some familiar opponents in the public-school tournament. The Red Devils open the playoffs at home against Region 7-A foe Hancock Central. Lincoln County won 27-8 when the teams met last weekend in the regular-season finale and leads the all-time series 15-0. Lincoln County also could face a rematch against Region 7-A runner-up Wilkinson County in the second round. Wilkinson County, the No. 9 seed, travels to eighth-seeded Miller County in the first round. Lincoln County beat Wilkinson 21-19 on Nov. 2.


The private-school tournament also will have a first-round rematch of region opponents when No. 2 seed Eagle's Landing Christian meets No. 15 Our Lady of Mercy. Eagle's Landing Christian was the region champion in 5-A, and Our Lady of Mercy finished fourth. ELCA won the regular-season meeting 49-0.


Savannah Christian, which won the Class A championship in 2011, is the No. 7 seed among private schools and will host Holy Innocents' in the first round.
