Yes, that is Randolph-Clay star Whenekia Washington walking off the court Thursday in Macon — she’s just wearing a purple and gold Jones County uniform, rather than the red and black of the Lady Red Devils. A miscommunication by the GHSA about what uniforms Randolph was supposed to wear left R-C scrambling — and certainly a little upset and shaken — hours before Thursday’s state title game against Gordon Lee. Jones County offered its jerseys to state No. 1-ranked Randolph, which slipped them on just before the game — then went out and lost, 61-56, in a stunning upset. (Larry G.
