Ten days ago, we started the 5A playoffs with 32 teams and we are now down to the final eight! Tonight, starts the Upper State and Lower State playoffs and DP is spread out across the Palmetto State catching the action and one of the points of interest was TL Hanna HS in Anderson, SC. Hanna has one of the top facilities in the state and there are not many places better to catch a ballgame. The place was packed with the Yellow Jacket faithful, and the Bengals of Blythewood brought quite the contingency as well.
Neither of these teams are strangers to postseason success which is what made this contest very interesting. Blythewood comes in as the state’s top team with a record of 28-1. The Jackets have been very familiar with playoff play as they have won several district titles in the recent years and have been a game away from the State Championship in 2016 & 2018. Will this be the year Hanna breaks through or will the Bengals get off to a strong start in their quest for the school’s first State Championship?
