Results from April 20, 1951 Alabama Tribune; April 26, 1951 Savannah Tribune

Team results

1st - Risley (Brunswick), 46.5 points
2nd - Wayne County Training (Jesup), 27
3rd - Brooks (Quitman), 22
4th - Hunt (Fort Valley), 18.5

A Savannah Tribune report on Haven Home's state results claim the school competed against 25 teams in "Class A." These results do not mesh with the known results for the A-B-C division, so it seems more likely Haven Home was in AA.
