Greenfield and Westview ended one season with wins.
Gleason’s boys started another the same way.
The Yellowjackets swept McKenzie on Thursday night, and the Chargers took two from Crockett County on Friday night in their final regular season games.
Greenfield picked up a 49-32 girls’ triumph and 72-48 boys’ verdict, while Westview rolled to a 60-17 girls’ win and 74-59 boys’ verdict.
Then, in the District 13A boys’ play-in game on Saturday, Gleason moved on with a 60-29 win over Carroll Academy at Clarksburg.
Gleason will now visit Weakley County rival and tournament top seed Dresden in the quarterfinal round Wednesday night.
The entire postseason schedule in West Tennessee was put on a one-day delay as a result of winter weather that moved through the area on Monday. Monday night’s games were moved to tonight, and tonight’s schedule shifted to Wednesday.
