Alcovy is top seed in region

With five regular season games remaining, Alcovy has earned itself a No. 1 seed in the Region 2-AAAAAA payoffs.
The Lady Tigers, ranked No. 7 in the most recent Atlanta Journal-Constitution poll, have won six straight and are the only unbeaten team in league play.

Alcovy’s most recent victory came over Morrow, its largest margin of victory of the season, 64-21.

It was the second win over Druid Hills, with the first coming 56-23 on Dec. 4.

With contests at Newton and Lovejoy, against Eastside and Rockdale and at Luella left, no one can catch the LadyTigers in the race for the top seed.

Newton and Rockdale are next behind Alcovy with one loss, according to maxpreps.com, but are more than three games behind in the win column.

It is the third straight year Alcovy sits atop the region in the regular season, with the Lady Tigers reaching the playoffs each of the last two years.

With the No. 1 seed last year, Alcovy fell to Fayette County in the Region 3-AAAAA championship. Alcovy excelled in the playoffs, reaching the final four before its historic season came to a conclusion at the hands of the eventual state champions Miller Grove.

By earning the top seed heading into the region tournament in a couple of weeks, it will earn a bye, automatically reaching the tournament's semifinals.

Being one of the region's top four teams also means Alcovy will find itself in the state playoffs once again.

Alcovy finished Region 3-AAAA in 2011-12 unbeaten, going 12-0, and is looking to go unbeaten in region play in back-to-back seasons for the first time in school history.
