The competition at the top in Region 8-AAAAA has been a constant battle all season on the girls’ side. From beginning to end, Flowery Branch (20-3, 12-1) and Gainesville (18-7, 10-3) have stood out near the top. When tournament play opens today, the top-seeded Lady Falcons and second-seeded Lady Red Elephants will open play at different locations with the very real possibility of playing each other for the region championship, after facing off three times in the regular season.
