Daily List: No. 4 seeds that won at least two playoff games

Only three No. 4 seeds survived the first round, as they went 3-45. The winners were Marietta, Mountain View and East Hall. (Marietta, technically, was an at-large playoff team that filled a No. 4 spot in the bracket.) No. 4 seeds that are good enough to get through have a better chance in the second round. They are 37-63 since 1996, when the GHSA expanded the state playoffs and allowed No. 4 seeds in. Here are the 37 teams seeded No. 4 that succeeded in winning two rounds in the playoffs. The only team to do it in 2016 was Coffee. Those with asterisks won at least one more game after the second round.
