Region Tournaments Start Friday Night With Girls In Action

Thursday, February 27, 2020

Taco Bell has its “fourth meal,” to be sure, but high school basketball just as surely has its “second season” and it begins Friday night when the region tournaments kick off.

The Chattanooga area will have more than its fair share of teams competing in the quest for the gold ball, awarded to the state champion in each of the TSSAA’s classifications.

The ladies kick off the parade of tournament games on Friday night with the top four teams out of each district moving on. District champions and runners-up will play at home with the threes and fours going on the road. The winners move on to the region semifinals on Monday night.

In Region 2-1A, it will be District 3 against District 4 with District 4 champion Tellico Plains entertaining District 3 #4, Sunbright. District 4 runner-up Lookout valley hosts Midway, while District 4 #3, Sale Creek travels to District 3 runner-up Wartburg Central. District 3 champ Oneida will host district 4 #4 CSAS. The region semifinals and finals will be hosted by CSAS.

In Class 2A, Region 3 is made up of Districts 5 and 6. The district 5 champion, Meigs County will play host to District 6’s Hixson and district 6 champ Red Bank hosts Polk County, the District 5 #4 team.

Signal Mountain, the District 6 runner-up will be at home against Sweetwater, while Tyner goes on the road to District 5 runner-up McMinn Central.

In Region 3-3A, District 5 champion Bradley Central will host Cookeville and runner-up East Hamilton entertains Stone Memorial. The District 6 champion White County hosts  McMinn County and District 5 #3 Cleveland travels to Rhea County. The region semis and finals will be held at White County.

In Division II-AA, Baylor will host Pope John Paul II and Chattanooga Christian travels to Brentwood Academy.
