The Heritage Generals won their opening match at the Class 4A State Duals in Macon on Thursday, but lost their quarterfinal match and dropped to the consolation brackets.
Heritage picked up an easy 78-6 win over Cross Creek to start the tournament, but fell to highly-regarded West Laurens, 47-27, later in the day.
The Generals will take on Baldwin in an elimination bracket match on Friday. Heritage will need to win four straight consolation matches in order to leave with the third place trophy.
The championship semifinals in 4A will pit Jefferson against West Laurens and Gilmer against Troup.
Gordon Lee will begin its quest for the Class 1A State Duals title on Friday with a quarterfinal match against Irwin County.
