LaFayette also were region champions in 1993. Entered the playoffs as a one seed and was upset by Villa Rica in the first round.

It's fixed. Thank you.

I made it a 3-way share among LaFayette, Pepperell & Cartersville.

Upon further review, I realize why we didn't have LaFayette as the region champion in 1993.

Everyone feel free to give their opinions on this --

LaFayette was seeded #1 for the REGION playoffs, but LaFayette didn't make the STATE playoffs. Instead, Pepperell was seeded #1 for the STATE playoffs.

Shouldn't the team that was seeded #1 for the state playoffs be the region champion? Shouldn't making the state playoffs be a prequisite for being a region champion?

I'm open to debate, but our guideline has been to award the region title to the team that is seeded #1 in the state playoffs. Otherwise, we'd have to go back and give region titles to all teams prior to 1990 that went 10-0 but lost in the first round of the REGION playoffs.

I agree, Todd. There are many examples of regular season #1's that didn't make the state playoffs. Just like in basketball, a regular season region champ and a region tourny champ are not always the same. In my book, the team that advances is the one that should be recognized.
