GUYTON — After losing 73-61 and 71-41, respectively, at home to Ware County on Monday, South Effingham’s boys and girls are set to visit Ware County on Wednesday for play-in games for the Region 2-AAAAA tournament, which starts Thursday in Statesboro.
The Mustangs are set to face the Gators at 7:30 p.m. The winners will earn a state playoff bid and the right to face Statesboro at 8 p.m. Thursday.
The Lady Mustangs are set to face New Hampstead at 6 p.m. Thursday at Ware County. South Effingham athletic director Jeff Faith, however, has petitioned the Georgia High School Association to move the contest to New Hampstead.
