Troup kicks things off against M.L. King today at 4:30 p.m., and the winner will advance to play either Carrollton or Douglass on Friday at 7:30p.m.

If Troup loses today, it would play again at 1:30 p.m. on Friday.

If Troup wins its first two games, it would play for the championship on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

The participating teams are Troup, M.L. King, Carrollton, Douglass, Heard County, Greenville, Riverdale and Druid Hills.
