Area teams claim region basketball titles

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

There were favorites holding off all challengers, and underdogs rising up to claim titles.

The region basketball championship games helped crown champions throughout south Georgia this weekend.

For some, like Colquitt County's girls, it was a first time in a long time. The Lady Packers claimed their first region crown since 1998. For others, like Fitzgerald's girls, it was a first time ever.

Upsets were the story of the weekend in the boys' brackets. Early County knocked off top-seeded Thomasville in the Dawg Pound to claim the Region 1-AA title, while fourth-seeded Lee County completed their Cinderella run with an overtime win in the Region 1-AAAAAA final.
