The Lakeview Academy basketball teams have qualified for the Class A Private playoffs, according to GHSA power ratings released Tuesday, with the Lions boys the 16th and final team to make their bracket.

Schools had 24 hours to appeal the ratings, meaning the seeds and matchups would be finalized today.

If the initial ratings held up, the No. 11 seed Lakeview girls would head to No. 6 Calvary Day School in Savannah for a first-round game Friday, and the No. 16 Lakeview boys would visit No. 1 St. Francis on Saturday.
