Cedar Grove and Stephenson headline the list of DeKalb teams positioning themselves for playoff seeding as they play for region championships Nov. 7.

Cedar Grove (8-1) will travel to No. 3 ranked Blessed Trinity (9-0) to play for the Region 4-AAA title. Cedar Grove has secured a home playoff game for the Class AAA state playoffs. It is the team’s fifth consecutive trip to the state playoffs.

The winner of the Region 4-AAA title game will be a No. 1 seed in the playoffs while the loser will be a No. 2 seed.

The Stephenson Jaguars (7-2) and the No. 9 ranked and defending Class AAAAA champions Creekside Seminoles (7-2) will play each other for the Region 6-AAAAA. The game is a rematch of the Sept. 19 regular season game, which Creekside won 28-14.

The winner will be the No. 1 seed from the region and the loser the No. 2 seed. Stephenson has secured a home game and its 15th consecutive playoff appearance with its Sub-Region A title.

Southwest DeKalb and Miller Grove are in must-win situations in their Region 6-AAAAA play-in games Nov. 7.

Southwest DeKalb (6-3), the Sub-Region A runner-up, is hosting Sub-Region B third seed Carver-Atlanta (7-2) at Panthersville. The winner gets a playoff berth. Southwest DeKalb is playing for its first playoff berth since 2012.

The Miller Grove Wolverines (5-4) will play for their first playoff appearance. Miller Grove will face No. 10 ranked Mays (7-2) at Lakewood Nov. 7. Miller Grove is the No. 3 team from Sub-Region A while Mays is the No. 2 team from Sub-Region B.

The No. 3 and No. 4 playoff seeds will be up for grabs Nov. 8 in Region 6-AAAA as Columbia (6-3) hosts Arabia Mountain (4-5) at Panthersville Stadium. Columbia has secured a playoff berth.

The Arabia Mountain Rams need a win to secure the team’s first playoff berth and a second consecutive non-losing regular season. A win by the Rams gives them the No. 3 seed from Region 6-AAAA while a loss would eliminate the Rams. A Columbia win would give Lithonia (6-4) its first playoff berth since 2002 and the Eagles the No. 3 seed heading into the playoffs.

Tucker won the Region 2-AAAAAA title and secured a No. 1 seed after its 27-12 win over Lovejoy Oct. 31. The region title was Tucker’s 15th title in program history.
