Coolidge at NECHES
6 p.m. Saturday
Even with the graduation of four starters and a move up in classification, the Neches girls’ basketball team can once again call itself district champions.
The Lady Tigers finished the season 19-12, with a 9-1 mark in District 21-A, Division I.
The three-time defending state champions in 1A, Division II will open the playoffs next week in the area round against the winner of the bi-district round game between Dallardsville Big Sandy and Broaduss. Time, date and location for that game will be determined next week.
The Lady Tigers will host Coolidge in a warm-up game Saturday. Tip-off is set for 6 p.m.
