The last time North Cobb High won in the postseason, Jimmy Carter was president.
Friday night, the Warriors did something about that.
North Cobb (9-2) routed Valdosta High (7-4) 42-14 to advance to the second round of the Class AAAAAA state football playoffs.
Next week, the Warriors will visit Fairburn’s Langston Hughes High. Hughes defeated Rockdale County 37-3.
Elsewhere in North Cobb, Allatoona bounced back from its Nov. 9 loss to East Paulding with Friday’s 24-21 victory over Heritage. The Bucs will face M.L. King in the second round of the Class AAAAA state playoffs.
