JH Boys tourney brackets released

With the pairings already announced for the Southern Hills Athletic Conference junior high girls tournament, the brackets for the junior high boys were released on Wednesday afternoon and the name “North Adams” appears prominently as both the Devils’ seventh and eighth grade boys team earned number one seeds after capturing regular season championships in the SHAC.

Coach Ryan Unger and his seventh grade Green Devils enter tournament play with the target squarely on their chests with a 16-0 record on the line, 13-0 and champions of the SHAC. Unger’s charges earned the SHAC number one seed and will be in action on Tuesday, Feb. 9 at 5 p.m. in the quarter-finals, facing the winner of the contest between number 8 seed West Union (4-9) and number 9 seed Fayetteville (3-10). A win in that game sends the Devils into the semi-finals which will be played on Saturday, Feb. 13 at Ripley High School.

The 9-4 Peebles Indians earned the number 4 seed in the seventh grade tournament and will face number 5 seeded Fairfield on Saturday, Feb. 6 at approximately 1 p.m. at Eastern Junior High. A win there likely sets up a semi-final game with North Adams for the right to play in the seventh grade title game. It was a tough year for the seventh grade Manchester Greyhounds, 0-12 in the SHAC and the number 10 seed. The Hounds will face number 7 seed Lynchburg (4-9) on Feb. 6 at 10 a.m. at Eastern Junior High. If the Hounds can pull off the upset, they will move on to face number 2 seed Eastern (11-2) in the quarter finals.

The seventh grade championship game will be played on Wednesday, Feb. 17 at West Union High School, with a scheduled 6 p.m. tip off.

In the eighth grade brackets, the number one line also is occupied by North Adams as Coach Eric Toole leads his Green Devils into action, sporting a 12-1 record and a regular season SHAC title. The Devils will be in action on Wednesday, Feb. 10 at Peebles High School in the quarter finals, facing the winner of number 8 seeded Lynchburg (4-9) and number 9 seeded Whiteoak (3-10). A win in their quarters moves North Adams to the semi-finals on Saturday, Feb. 13 in Ripley.

The Peebles Indians (6-7) are the number 5 seed in the eighth grade tourney and will be in action on Saturday, Feb. 6 at 10:30 a.m. at Eastern High School, battling number 4 seed Ripley (9-4). A win for the Indians there could set up a possible North Adams-Peebles match up in the semi-finals.

Manchester (0-12) is the number 10 seed again in eighth grade and will tip off tourney play on Feb. 6 at 1 p.m. against number 7 seeded Fayetteville (5-8). West Union (5-8) is the number 6 seed in the eighth grade and will take on number 3 seeded Fairfield in quarter final action on Feb. 10 at Peebles with tip off set for 6:30 p.m.

The championship game of the eighth grade tournament will be played on Feb. 17 at West Union, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Coach Eric Toole leads his eighth grade North Adams Green Devils into SHAC tournament play with a 12-1 SHAC record and a number one seed.
