JH girls tourney brackets announced

It’s time for the Southern Hills Athletic Conference junior high basketball tournament to get underway and the brackets for the junior high girls were released earlier this week.

It was kind of an odd year for junior high girls basketball in Adams County as only North Adams was able to field both seventh and eighth grade girls’ squads. West Union had only a seventh grade team, while Manchester and Peebles fielded only eighth grade teams, albeit with both of those rosters populated mostly with seventh grade girls.

The seventh grade girls squad from North Adams, coached by Shannon Staggs, were the SHAC regular season champions and thus earned the tournament’s number one seed and an automatic spot in the semi-finals. The Lady Devils will face the winner of the Fayetteville-Eastern game on Tuesday, February 9 at Whiteoak High School.

The seventh grade girls from West Union will be in quarter-final action this Saturday, Feb. 6 at approximately 1 p.m. as they face number two seeded Fairfield.

The seventh grade championship game will be on Feb. 13 at 7 p.m. at North Adams High School.

In the eighth grade draw, the Peebles Lady Indians are the number two seed and will play this Saturday, Feb. 6 at noon at Fayetteville High School. Their opponent will be number seven seed Fairfield. The number three seeded Manchester Lady Hounds will also be on the court at Fayetteville on Saturday at 3 p.m., facing number six seed Eastern. If both Peebles and Manchester win, it will be an all-Adams County semi-final match up on Feb. 10 at Fairfield Junior High, tip off at 5 p.m.

The county’s other eighth grade squad, the North Adams Lady Devils, earned a number four seed and will begin play on Wednesday, Feb. 3 on their home floor at NAHS, facing the number five seeded Fayetteville Lady Rockets. A North Adams win sends them into the Feb. 10 semi-finals at Fairfield and a match up with number one seed Lynchburg.

The eighth grade championship game is set for Feb. 13 at 8:30 p.m. at North Adams High School.
