As Centennial’s Bryan Wallace says, state championships are not won and lost in March. Nonetheless, the week ahead is a pivotal one for the Knights boys lacrosse team.

Third-ranked Centennial (7-1) faces a pair of crucial games in a tightly packed Area 3-AAAAAA this week, traveling to No. 6 Northview (7-1) on Wednesday and hosting No. 2 Lambert (8-1) on Saturday.

Vidalia looks like the team to beat in next week’s Region 2-AA boys tournament. Since falling 80-51 to Bryan County in early January, the Indians have won 11 straight.

We’re coming down to the wire on the regular season, and the urgency is picking up. Though region tournaments provide a lifeline to the postseason, the importance of seeding shouldn’t be underestimated.
