Alexander, which finished third in Region 5-AAAA during the regular season, began the playoff son the road by defeating Cedartown two games to one in the first round. The Cougars proceeded to upset the top-ranked team in the state, Marist, in the second round, once again winning a series two games to one.

The third game against Wayne County saw the Cougars down 6-4 in the top of the seventh before Wise hit a three-run home run, giving them a 7-6 lead. Alexander added some insurance runs and won the contest 13-7 to secure the series win. Wise also pitched 1-1/3 innings in the deciding game allowing no runs or hits.
