Salem, Heritage to meet in playoffs
Placeholder Image

Even though the Region playoffs don't start until Tuesday, Apalachee made it so at least one Rockdale County team will make the state playoffs this season.

Thanks to Apalachee's 5-2 win over Winder-Barrow on Thursday, Winder-Barrow was knocked out of the top six in Region 8-AAAA.

Taking that sixth spot was Salem.

Salem will play Tuesday at the third-seeded team, the Heritage Patriots. The best-of-three series will start with a double-header on Tuesday and go to Wednesday, again at Heritage, if needed.

Heritage finished behind Madison County and top-ranked Loganville in Region 8-AAAA.

The state tournament begins Oct. 12.
