to start on Monday
The District 13AA Tournament will now start on Monday — two days later than originally slated – due to the winter weather of the past week and the need to complete the league’s regular season prior to the playoffs.
At Dyersburg on Monday, the Obion Central boys will play in the nightcap against Milan in a play-in game.
Meanwhile, the OC girls will also have an interest in Monday’s action as the No. 1 seed Lady Rebels will face the winner of the 6 p.m. play-in game pitting Crockett County against either Ripley or Milan.
The quarterfinals of the 13AA Tournament are scheduled for Tuesday (girls) and Wednesday (boys) with the event back on its regular schedule by Thursday.
The District 14A Tournament is also slated to begin on Monday night. See page nine of today’s Messenger for those brackets
