Hoops teams wrap up final area games this week

— Tanner’s three-game winning streak was snapped Saturday night as the boys team lost at home to 6A Austin 46-42. Tanner played an pivotal area game at Lexington Monday after press time and will host the Wildcats Friday for the Ratters’ final area game of the season.

A win Monday would clinch another area title for head coach Chris Whitt and the right to host the 2A Area 15 tournament.

The Ratters will travel to West Limestone tonight for a preview of what could be a Limestone County semifinal game next week. The girls game will feature a battle of top ten teams as 4A No. 3 West Limestone host 2A No. 6 Tanner

Other games involving varsity boys and girls teams include East Limestone at East Lawrence, Ardmore at J.O. Johnson and Elkmont at Madison Academy.

County teams will be in action for a full slate of games Friday that include Athens at Russellville, East Limestone at Cullman, Lexington at Tanner, West Limestone at Ardmore, Lauderdale County at Clements and West Morgan at Elkmont.
