It’s the most wonderful time of the year, at least for those countians who are big basketball fans, and the teams of the Southern Hills Athletic Conference are getting set to kickoff the 2016-17 seasons with the annual SHAC Preview nights.
First on the schedule is the Girls Preview on Nov. 18, hosted this year once more by North Adams High School.   Kicking off the night will be a 5 p.m. match up between the Fairfield Lady Lions and last year’s SHAC gold ball winners and heavily favored to repeat, the Lynchburg Lady Mustangs.  At 6 p.m., the Fayettevillle Lady Rockets will battle the Peebles Lady Indians and new head coach Billie Jo Justice.
At 7 p.m., the Whiteoak Lady Wildcats face the Ripley Lady Jays and at 8 p.m. New head coach Vohn Hoop will put his Manchester Lady Hounds on the court for the first time, matched up with the Eastern Lady Warriors.  The evening concludes at 9 p.m. With an all-Adams County tussle, with new head coach J.R. Kirker leading the West Union Lady Dragons into battle with Coach Rob Davis and the host North Adams Lady Devils.
One week later on Friday, Nov. 25, the boys’ teams of the SHAC take center stage at Lynchburg High School and the 5 p.m. Kickoff is the reverse of the final match up at the girls preview, as Coach Nathan Copas and the North Adams Green Devils, defending SHAC small school champions, will face Coach Josh White and his West Union Dragons.  At 6 p.m., Coach Josh Arey pits his Peebles Indians against the Fayetteville Rockets.
The 7 p.m. Game will see the Ripley Blue Jays tangle with the Whiteoak Wildcats, then at 8 p.m. New head coach Joey Darnell will lead his Manchester Greyhounds to the court to face off with the Eastern Warriors.  The night ends with the host Lynchburg Mustangs, fresh off a Final Four appearance last spring, battling the Fairfield Lions.
Preview games consist of two quarters of basketball and the admission price is $5 for both adults and students.  No passes are accepted.
