Sub-regional games delayed

By Kim West

— The winter storm postponed all of Thursday's local basketball sub-regional games and also pushed back one of Friday's key matchups.

Area tournament winners earned the right to host the elimination sub-regional round, while runners-up must travel.

Sub-regional winners advance to the Northwest Regional Tournament on Feb. 18-22 in Hanceville.

In Class 5A, the East Limestone girls host Athens at 7 p.m. Friday, while the Athens boys host East at 7 p.m. Saturday.

In 4A, the Ardmore girls travel south to face defending state champion Oneonta, and the West Limestone boys host Haleyville. Both games are at 7 p.m. Friday.

Tanner hosts a doubleheader Friday, with the girls tipping off at 4 p.m. against Colbert Heights and the boys playing Cherokee at 7 p.m.
