Americus-Sumter clinches first region title since '04 merge

COLUMBUS, GA (WALB) - Americus-Sumter's Thursday night 33-9 victory over Columbus clinched them the Region 1-AAAA title.

It's the school's first region championship since Americus and Sumter County merged in 2004.

The Panthers road win improved them to (6-0) in the region and (7-2) overall.

Not only did they make history, but they also secured a 1-seed in the postseason which would mean home-field advantage in the first two rounds.

Americus-Sumter can run the table in the region with a win over Carver at home November 3rd to close the regular season.
