I was alright having two forteits, we played upper vs. underclassmen so it was a great playing experience, but in the round of 32 we had a forfeit against Ola A not Sonoraville. They're listed as going 1-6 that day which wouldn't be possible since the stats have them losing in the round of 64 to Sta...

Re: CATT VI - (12/11/2010) - Chattahoochee High School

Mr. Rountree a quick edit to the Stats that could change a few teams standings: it is listed as Sonoraville A forfeiting to Norcross A in the round of 32. Norcross had a BYE round after OLA A told us they were leaving during that round.
