With the Chester County High School Eaglettes at the top of the District 12 Girls and the Eagles in second place of the District 12 Boys, both Chester County teams sealed a spot in the Region 6 Tournament from the byes they earned from their ranking.
The CCHS Eaglettes enter the the postseason following a marvelous regular season. With an overall record of 23-3 the team has made themselves known in the state ranks.
Each of their three losses were versus opponents who they beat at least once. Wins and losses were split between the Eaglettes and the teams of McNairy and Huntingdon. The other loss was to Crockett County who they defeated twice to be 2-1 against.
Last Tuesday, they defeated Hardin County with a score of 45-21.
In their game against Lexington on Friday, Eaglette Jariyah Williamson showed the Tigers no mercy by scoring 33 points that evening including a buzzer beater three-point shot to end the first quarter leading her team to another win.
The final score of the Eaglettes vs Lady Tigers was 59-28.
Their first game of the postseason will be in the semifinals tomorrow evening, Friday, February 16 at 6 p.m. at CCHS versus the winner of Lexington and Hardin County.
The Eagles enter the postseason with a record of 19-6.
Over the past couple weeks the Eagles lost some games to lose their first place spot in the district to South Side. Nonetheless, they were still able to get the number two spot and earn them the bye that pushes them into the regional tournament.
Last Tuesday, they were able to get a win over Hardin County after falling to them the previous game, but lost to Lexington on Friday. The Eagles versus Tigers game was contested, but once the Tigers had a good lead at the end, they were able to successfully hold the ball and maintain winning giving the Eagles a 64-68 loss.
The Eagles’ first game of the postseason will be in the semifinals Saturday evening, February 17 at 7:30 p.m. at CCHS versus the winner of North Side and McNairy.
