West Limestone’s area championship was less dramatic, beating Central 48-26 to win its area championship for the second consecutive year. West Limestone will host Priceville Thursday for a chance to advance to the Northwest Regional at Wallace State.

Athens suffered a 49-43 defeat to Lawrence County Saturday night in its area championship and will travel to Cullman for a subregion game Thursday.
