Chester County High School Eagles play for district
By Kendall Patterson
The time has come where Tennessee high school basketball teams play their hardest as the post season kicks off.
After a rough loss against McNairy at home last Tuesday with a score of 64-51, the Eaglettes fell to last in the district at the end of the regular season.
The game did feature a buzzer-beater shot at halftime from Jariyah Wlliamson that went in from beyond halfcourt.
The Eaglettes faced off against the McNairy Lady Bobcats again during the first round of the district tournament but lost again 51-32.
The Eaglettes managed to earn themselves a W during consolation which placed them in third within the district. The win was over Lexington 43-23.
In the last regular season matchup for the Eagles against the Bobcats last Tuesday, the Eagles kept the score close throughout the game, but could not pull off a win as they lost 76-72.
Nonetheless, when they played the Bobcats again in the first round of the district tournament, the Eagles got their revenge and defeated McNairy 82-71 which advanced them to the district tournament championship that was played on Tuesday February 22.
During most of the game, the Eagles were winning, but the Bobcats tied it a few times and even took the lead a couple times. The Eagles still perservered til the end though and took the lead to win it.
All district teams will advance to the regional level of play regardless of where they ranked in the district. The district tournament determined the seeding for the regional tournament.
