Girls tourney pairings released

Another basketball regular season has flown by and the postseason is upon us and on Sunday afternoon, the four high school girls varsity teams in Adams County learned where they will all begin their sectional tournament play in the Southeast District, three teams competing in Division III and one in Division IV.

The county’s lone representative in Division IV will be the Manchester Lady Greyhounds, who are a number 11 seed and will be matched up in an opening round sectional game with the Lady Tartans of Sciotoville East, who earned a number 6 seed. That game is scheduled for Feb. 10 at 8 p.m. at Northwest High School. If the Lady Hounds survive their first round contest, they will be back in action on Feb. 13 at Northwest, taking on fellow Southern Hills Athletic Conference foe, the Fairfield Lady Lions in a 2:45 p.m. tip off.

In Division III, the West Union Lady Dragons are a number 8 seed and will also be in action on Feb. 10, matching up with the number nine seeded Northwest Lady Mohawks. That game will take place at Valley High School wit a 6:15 p.m. tip off. If the Lady Dragons get by Northwest, who they defeated earlier in the season, they face the unenviable task of meeting the number one seeded Lynchburg Lady Mustangs in a sectional final game on Feb. 13 at 1 p.m., also at Valley High School.

Seeded number seven in Division IV are the Peebles Lady Indians, who will be the third team in action on Feb. 10 as they face off with number 10 seeded Adena in an opening round sectional contest. That game will be played at 8 p.m. at Valley High School. If the Lady Indians survive round one, they will move on to face a very familiar foe in the sectional finals.

The highest seeded team from the county in Division III is the North Adams Lady Devils, whose stellar season thus far earned them a number two seed and a first round bye. The Lady Devils will be in the sectional finals on Feb. 13 at 4:30 p.m. at Valley High School, facing the winner of the Peebles-Adena game. If the Lady Devils win their tourney opener, they will move on to the district tournament at Waverly High School and will be back in action on Feb. 22, but will likely have to survive another battle with Peebles to get there.

All of the Division II, III, and IV girls tournament brackets can be found at www.seodab.org.

Head coach Rob Davis leads his second-seeded North Adams Lady Devils into postseason play as they will be in action on Feb. 13 in a sectional final game at Valley High School.
