For most prep boys basketball teams the regular season has drawn to a close as preparation for the upcoming LHSAA playoffs begin. There are four area schools that have final tune-up games slated for this Friday and Saturday though, although none are playing at home. Highlighting the action is Quitman traveling to Sterlington on Friday and Saline heading to the same place on Saturday. Two more games are scheduled for Friday with Cedar Creek heading to Doyline and West Ouachita making the short journey to Union High in Farmerville.
Only two Jackson Parish Journal Sports coverage area teams claimed district titles this year with Arcadia winning 1-1A and Calvin coming out in a tie with Atlanta for the 4C crown in the season that saw a disparity of games played due to COVID-19 epidemic. For Arcadia the results were positive as they and Calvary Baptist both finished undefeated in 1-1A play but the Hornets had one more victory. It wasn’t so good for Jonesboro-Hodge, Ouachita, Lakeview and Red River. Each finished in a tie for first in the loss column but had one less win than the eventual champion due to not being able to play as many games.
