By: Cameron McElwaney

After sweeping the first round of the playoffs, the Newnan Cougars travel to Norcross High School for a second round match-up in the Sweet 16 against the Blue Devils.

The first game is set to begin at 4:00 PM, and the second game has been scheduled to be played at 6:30 PM today (May 4th).

If the Cougars win both games tonight, then they will advance to the third round of the playoffs. If, however, they split the series today with a win and loss, they will play at Norcross again on Thursday.

Norcross enters the second round playoff series with a 23-6 record, and the Cougars enter the game with a 20-8 record. Both look to advance to the Elite 8 after tonight’s game.
