Frankie Sullivan knows plenty about winning championships.

The Auburn signee has led R.C. Hatch to two straight state titles and is gunning for a three-peat as the playoffs are underway.

Hatch (24-1), ranked No. 1 in Class 2A, plays in the Region semifinals Wednesday against another Top 10 team in Lanett (22-5). The last time these two teams met was for the 2006 state championship.

Hatch's only loss this season was to Class 5A Wilcox Central.
