Elementary tournament back Monday

No sport has been safe from the torrential downpours locally. Not even basketball.

Area flooding which caused the cancellation of school also had a big effect on the 5-6 grade elementary basketball tournaments. Both districts had to postpone play over the weekend, when champions had been set to be crowned.

Warren County High School athletic director Todd Willmore made the call Wednesday afternoon to postpone semifinal games set for Thursday and the championship games orginally set for Saturday. They'll now be played this Monday and Tuesday.

"With the threat of more rain Friday and storms Saturday, I believe it would be best to move the tournaments," said Willmore in a statement.

The District 1 tournament is being played at Boyd Christian School, while District 2 is holding court at Dibrell Elementary.

Last Tuesday was the lone night where games were able to play as scheduled. In District 1, the Boyd Broncos and Bobby Ray Lady Stars each advanced. Both teams moved into matchups with Irving College, which earned the No. 1 seed in both brackets.

In District 2, the Dibrell Wildcats and Morrison Lady Eagles were able to avoid elimination with wins. Both teams will also be in action Monday night (brackets with game times are listed below).

Three teams are trying to add a tournament championship to a perfect season. The Irving College Lady Tigers in District 1 and Centertown Lady Warriors and WCMS Pioneers in District 2 all finished 8-0 in the regular season. All three teams will be in action for the first time in the tournament Monday night.

Championship games are set for 7 and 8:15 p.m. Tuesday night at Boyd and Dibrell.

A night of champions will pit the winners from each district against each other to battle for the overall county championship Thursday.

The District 1 winners will serve as the host school for the county championship, which could be played at two venues depending on Tuesday's results.
