The Jaguars finished their regular season 17-5 and 4-2 in district play.  That finish spotted them as the No. 2 seed in the 5A District 2 tournament that will be played at Florida High.  EGHS will face third-seed Marianna at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 31.  The winner of that game will play the winner of No. 1 Florida High and Taylor County  at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb.    2.

The good news is the Lady Cats were led in scoring and rebounding against Liberty County by a trio of middle-school players, forecasting an improved future for the winless program.  Liberty County won the game 35-19 and led 21-8 at the half.  Joanna Parramore, a seventh-grader, had eight points, four steals and three rebounds.  Senior Morgan Bot added seven points and eighth-graders Brooke Smith and Elizabeth Kever combined for 13 rebounds.
The Lady Cats will face Tallavana Christian in the semifinal game of the three team,  2A District 1 tournament at Aucilla Christian.  That game will be played Tuesday night at 7.  The winner will face No. 1 seed Aucilla on Friday at 7 p.m.

The Lady Lion finished their regular season a week early and finished it on a solid note.  The team went 0-2 with wins over Liberty County and Taylor County and will face Munroe on Tuesday night in the first/semifinal round of the 2A District 1 tournament at Aucilla Christian.  TCS has defeated Munroe twice this season and are the second seed in the tournament.
