In the event of Brookwood not making it to the final, there will be a Barry-led steel chair run-in in full support of the heel team.

I'd say Brookwood has been the strongest of those teams this year, though Milton has been impressive as well. I can't remember their head-to-head record, but with two good teams, anything can happen. Walton is solid but I think will be much better next year.

BUT! One further note... I think we should clarify by saying this is Georgia Class AAAAA. There are still four other state titles (A-AAAA) on the line in Macon (well, actually near Macon, but let's not get technical) on March 20th. Central-Macon, for one, will be playing in AAA; there are no names anyone here would be familiar with in our division, but we always have surprises...

Also, unlike some other states (Arkansas, one that I know of), we have no overall state title, so there will be 5 undisputed state champions coming out of that tournament. Potential interclass matchups will have to wait for Nationals, if that.

I predict Brookwood will show up for the 5A State Tournament.

I predict that Central-Macon will win 3A state title in GA.

I predict that Savannah Country Day will win the 1A state title.

4A is a tossup...Heritage, Woodward?

I have not doen my 2A homework.

Yes, Arkansas is strange.

The Arkansa Activities Association regulates the 5 official state tournaments run by the Arkansas Governor's Quiz Bowl Association, but then AGQBA through a deal with Arkasas Educational Television Network runs their own tournament consisting of the winners and runners-up for each of the 5 classes that is taped in a studio, with the final 3 matches shown live.

Might be a webcast again this year.

I think that Brookwood will be our toughest competition in 5A. However, Walton is really good too. I would not count out Parkview, either. If they are able to get a team together, they WILL be contenders.

Chattahoochee always has a chance. Last year i never thought they would make it past the first round of the playoffs at state, then they kicked the living crap out of us. They have a remarkable ability to improve over the course of the year and since i haven't seen them recently i would have to put them in the running. Perhaps they engage in that studying thing Mr. Barry mentions from time to time.

edit: Nice self-effacing humor with that asclepius mention.

Seriously, that asclepius question was not funny. Okay, maybe it was, but still, I think state this year will be extremely exciting. Of course I, just like everyone else, expects central-macon to take their division's championship, but for 5A i think the top 4 will probably come down to Milton, Brookwood, Walton and Chatahoochee. As has been proven before, anything can happen, but I think that if these 4 teams make it to the semi's it will be an exciting finish.

There's always the Lowndes team that has yet to see competition. And being the fifth largest high school in Georgia we do have some talent. :)

My vote goes to the guys over at Snellville, but I would also expect Milton to put up a good fight.

Just here to pose a question as to who will be attending the Woodward tourney. Milton is planning to go sans one of their starters and I was just wondering who else might be planning to attend, considering this will most likely be a smaller tourney. Thx

Brookwood will have 2 JV teams at Woodward, but our varsity was previously committed to play at the SC Quizarama (Irmo HS).

Noah,
She just sent out invitations about a month ago --- via email, I think, don't know how much snail mail she did. But the info is on the tournament calendar for February at http://www.gataquizbowl.org/

Varsity and JV. She may have meant to keep the fields rather small since she hasn't had a tournament in a while.

NoahMink CHS,

If your team can go you should try and contact woodward to go. I would love to play you guys there seeing as how we have not seen each other yet this year.

We'll be there, but we're losing two kids from varsity to Science Bowl state.
