Tigers capture Region 6-AAA crown; Adairsville girls finish fourth

The third time was a charm for the Adairsville Tigers Friday night.

After falling in a pair of close regular season games to the top-seeded and region host Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe Warriors, Adairsville came out on top when it counted Friday night in the Region 6-AAA championship game at LFO, 55-54.

The game was in doubt throughout the night.

Adairsville led 31-28 at the intermission but the Warriors made up the deficit in the third quarter to knot the score at 43-all.

Zach Postell, who led the Tigers with 17 points, knocked down a pair of shots from behind the three-point arc in the final period while Tay Jackson and Xavious Nalls added the Tigers’ other six points in the period to escape with a one-point victory.

Nalls finished with 14 points as did Tre Winters.

The Warriors were limited to just 11 points on four field goals and no free throws in the fourth quarter. Three of their made shots were from behind the arc.

Brent Bowman and Amari Burnett led LFO with 12 points each. Jayden Dover added nine for the Warriors.

Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe (16-11) will now enter the Class 3A State Tournament as a 2-seed. The Warriors will host the Douglass Astros (13-13) in the opening round.

Adairsville (19-8) begins next week’s state tournament with a home game against winless Carver-Atlanta. The Panthers are 0-25 this season from the four-team Region 5-3A.

Game times and whether teams will play Tuesday or Wednesday in the first round will be determined later this weekend.


The Adairsville girls dropped a nail-biter to the Bremen Lady Blue Devils Friday evening in the third place game of the Region 6-AAA tournament at Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe High School.

Adairsville led 12-8 after one quarter but trailed 21-19 at halftime. The Blue Devils moved to a 33-29 lead after three quarters and then held off a late charge by the Tigers to win by one point.

Bremen freshman, Marley Derringer, led the Devils’ scoring with 14 points.

Analee Morris scored 15 points for Adairsville. NaXyria Roberts finished with eight and Aliya McBryde tossed in seven for the Lady Tigers.

Bremen (19-8) will be a 3-seed in next week’s state tournament first round and will visit Carver-Atlanta (16-10).

Adairsville (13-14) will be a 4-seed and must play at Region 5-AAA champions, Sandy Creek (15-11), in the opening round.
