The final two boys All-Star teams from Jackson Parish yet to play will begin their District 8 tournaments with JP13U playing Union Parish on Thursday and JP12U taking on Winn Parish on Friday.
Under the guidance of head coach Keith Caskey and assistants Eric Hardaway, Josh Halbrook, and Colby Hunt, JP13U will play the Dixie Boys district tourney at Beidenharn Park in West Monroe with a berth in the state tournament in Pineville on July 8 already locked up.
That is because Jackson Parish is fielding the only 13U team in the three-team bracket with both Union Parish and Winn Parish bringing 14U teams for the round-robin competition where each team will play two games. JP13U will open against Union Parish at 6:30 pm on Thursday and play Winn Parish at 6:30 pm on Saturday.
Head coach Nick Tolar and assistants Derek Goss and Dusty Griffin lead JP12U into first-round action against Winn Parish in the six-team, Dixie Youth District 8 tournament, played at the Jackson Parish Recreation Department Sports Complex. Game time is set for 8:00 pm on Friday on Field One. The winner there draws a bye to play whoever emerges from the contests between Pineville / Tioga and Buckeye / Grant.
