Three District 5-AAA Teams Win, But Ooltewah Falls In Region 3-AAA

Walker Valley, Cleveland, Bradley Boys Advance To Semifinal Round

Saturday, February 22, 2014 - by Special to Chattanoogan.com
It was a good night for District 5-AAA boys basketball teams in first-round Region 3-AAA action.

That is, except Ooltewah.

Three of the four 5-AAA teams advanced to the region semifinals with victories over 6-AAA schools, but the Owls came up short in an 82-71 loss to Stone Memorial, the 6-AAA champion.

Ooltewah (15-12) ended its season with three straight losses. Stone Memorial (25-6) continued a late-season push with its eighth straight win.

Meanwhile, 5-AAA champion Walker Valley (22-9) claimed its 11th consecutive victory with a 73-65 home-court decision over Cumberland County (11-19), the No. 4 seed out of 6-AAA.

Bradley Central (16-11), the No. 3 seed out of 5-AAA, posted a 63-51 road win over Cookeville (21-10), which was the No. 3 seed from 6-AAA.

And 5-AAA runner-up Cleveland (18-8) edged visiting White County, 57-50. White County, No. 3 from 6-AAA, ended its season at 22-8.

The Region 3-AAA girls semifinals are scheduled for Monday at Cookeville High School and the boys semifinals will be played on Tuesday, also at Cookeville High.
