North Hall will be the team that ends Jefferson’s streak of consecutive dual state titles. Their youth, Middle School and High School all seem to be in sync.
That’s a pretty bold statement…..but you might be right. North Hall was weak in the heavier weights, mostly because they are so young. It’ll be interesting to see if some kids grow into those weights and if they have enough backups or middle schoolers to fill in the holes created by kids maturing. Without seeing what Jefferson is graduating, I’d have to say Jefferson and North Hall are the prohibitive favorites to be in the AAA finals next year at Macon.
I think Lumpkin will bounce back and take that 2nd spot out of the Area next season instead of Jackson County and Sonoraville looked pretty good but I don’t see either competing with North Hall or Jefferson.
