With one exception, all of the qualifiers are in place for next week’s 12th Region Tournaments. Here’s who’s in:
45th District: Danville, Lincoln County
46th District: East Jessamine, Mercer County
47th District: Casey County, Rockcastle County
48th District: Southwestern, Wayne County
45th District: Boyle County, Lincoln County
46th District: East Jessamine, West Jessamine
47th District: Pulaski County, Somerset
48th District: Southwestern
The only remaining semifinal matches Monticello and Wayne County tonight in the boys 48th District. If Wayne wins as expected, seven of the eight district title games will be the same as they were last season. The only exception so far is in the girls 45th, where Danville replaces Boyle County.
Three girls champions will be crowned tonight when title games are played in the 45th, 46th and 47th. The girls 48th final is Friday night, along with boys finals in the 45th, 46th and 47th. The boys 48th final is Saturday night.
Regional tournament pairings will be drawn Saturday for the girls tournament at Lincoln County and Sunday for the boys tourney at Pulaski. The girls regional once again goes first with first-round games Monday and Tuesday nights; the boys first round will be played over the following two days.
