Wednesday, February 20, 2013 - by John Hunt

Now that all of the district basketball hardware has been passed out, it's time for local teams to take the next step and that's the region tournaments.

All of the quarterfinal games will be played at the higher seeded team with semifinals and finals in one location.

Sale Creek will host the 3-A tournament while McMinn County has the 3-AA and Cleveland the 3-AAA.  The site for the 4-AA tournament has yet to be determined.
