Update: Trojans, Lady Longhorns Earn Playoff Berths
Lassiter will open the state basketball tournament at home Saturday against Alpharetta after losing the Region 5-AAAAA title to Wheeler.
It might be a good omen for Lassiter because the same two schools met in the first round of the GHSA football playoffs in November. The Trojans, including Clark and Dickey, won that game in overtime, 17-16.

Wheeler (16-10) will be home Saturday night against the No. 4 seed from Region 6-AAAAA, Northview.
The Lady Longhorns will be home Friday night at 7:30 against Southwest DeKalb, the third seed from Region 6-AAAA. If they win, they'll face either Clarke Central at home or Creekview on the road the following Tuesday.
