Jefferson Claims 19th State Duals Title
The GHSA Duals State Championships took place this weekend, and a number of our local programs were in the brackets. Commerce, Towns, Banks, Union, Rabun, Stephens, Dawson, Lumpkin, Jefferson, and Habersham Central all were in the Prelims. Only Banks, Commerce, and Jefferson advanced to the quarterfinals.
Jefferson rolled through the bracket, defeating region foes Flowery Branch in the finals after taking down Central, Carrollton and North Oconee. It marked the 19th title (duals) for the Dragons.
Commerce fell to Mt. Pisgah in the Championship match, but had previously taken care of Screven County and Trion. It snapped a 6-year win streak of winning the Duals Championship for Commerce.
Banks County finished 5th in 2A, defeating Tombs County once in the quarterfinals.
