What’s next

District 6-4A is unique in the fact that it only has four teams and the top four teams in each district across the state advance to region play. So all teams will advance – but seeding is up for grabs. The top two seeds (teams reaching the championship games) will host the bottom two seeded teams from District 5-4A in the quarterfinals of the Region 3-4A tournament – which is an elimination game. While the bottom two seeded teams from District 6-4A will travel to open region play.

Once past the region quarterfinals, the region semi-finals and finals will be played in the Chattanooga area. The top two teams from the region advance to the state sectional for a winner take all game – the sectional winner goes to the state tournament at Murphy Center in Murfreesboro, while the loser’s season comes to an end.
