Saline High School will host the annual William Britt Classic this Thursday, December 30th featuring some of the finest prep boys and girl’s teams in north Louisiana including a premier matchup between the Jonesboro-Hodge boys team, which has a 6-2 record and ranked 5th in Class AA and Calvin, who is ranked #1 in Class C after winning 17 of their first 18 games.
The six game gala event is named in honor of long time Saline coach, Principal and Bienville Parish administrator, William Britt, who led the Bobcats to seven straight Class C championship games from 1990-96 and four straight Class C titles from 1990-93. His 1990-93 teams set a national record for wins over a four year period that still stands today.
The tourney begins with Class 5A Ruston (10-3) taking on Class AA Red River (6-6). That will be followed by the Calvin girls and Red River girls leading up to the JHHS/Calvin boys tilt. The #3 ranked girls team in Class 5A, Parkway, is then scheduled to play the JHHS girls team with the Saline girls and boys playing rival Atlanta in the final two games of the tourney.
