The Tournament
Teams: 15
How determined:

Champion: Butler
School Title: 1st
Final Record: 28-4
Coach: Sonny Poss
Notes:

Other Notes:

  • Third place Warner Robins was on fire, winning 3rd place. Very easily, though, their championship run could have gone up in smoke. Just days before the state tournament began, their gym burned. As their gym had been reserved for another function on that night, the Demons were practicing elsewhere. Still, they lost several basketballs and their road uniforms. They requested that Campbell-Smyrna wear their dark jerseys so that they wouldn't have to borrow.
