The Lakeview Academy and Towns County girls basketball teams have both been selected to play in the Class A state tournaments, according to an announcement made Friday by the GHSA.

The Lady Lions were selected as a No. 10 seed in the Class A private school tournament and visit No. 7 seed Mount Paran Christian in the first round at 6 p.m. Monday in Kennesaw. The Lady Indians were chosen as the No. 9 seed for the Class A public tournament and visit No. 8 seed Gordon Lee at 6 p.m. Monday in Chickamauga.

Unlike Class AA-AAAAAA, Class A teams are selected for the playoffs by a power rating system. Region champions are automatically awarded a playoff spot, with the remaining teams seeded based on power rating.

Power ratings are determined by the amount of wins for each team, as well as the quality of their opponents in each victory.

Lakeview Academy (20-8) finished second in Region 8-A and recorded an 11.80 power rating. Towns County (18-10) finished third in the region and had a power rating of 11.34.
