So much for Dennis Woolfolk’s prediction that Jones County’s Feb. 1 triple overtime victory over Northside-Warner Robins was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for his players.

They did the exact same thing in their next game last Tuesday, downing Warner Robins 72-66 on the road to claim a share of the subregion regular season crown.

“I don’t know if the guys will believe what I say now. But those were two great games back to back that I hope give us good momentum going into the playoffs,” Woolfolk said.

His luck at coin tosses is also suspect. With a three-way tie for first between Jones County, Warner Robins and Northside, the coin flip was needed to determine seeding for the Region 2-AAAAA Tournament, which Jones County is hosting this week. Woolfolk came out last in the toss, with Robins winning the west subregion’s top seed, Northside the second and the Greyhounds the third.

Jones County (15-9 overall, 4-2 subregion) was to play Grovetown (8-17, 3-6), the No. 2 seed from the east subregion, in the opening round at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, needing a victory to advance to the state playoffs.

The region semifinals are set for Friday, with the championship and consolation games to determine final seeding for state to be Saturday.
