    Rabun County girls actually ended in a tie with Union County girls with a tie score of 199 in the Area Tournament. They had to play a sudden death playoff round with each other with Rabun Girls coming out on top as Area runner-ups & qualified as a team for State tournament! Rabun County results: Journey Quilliams shot a 96. Faith Cofield shot a 109. And Cassidy Richardson shot a 103.
