The Region 8-AAAAA girls basketball tournament will begin — finally — Saturday.
The Apalachee High School Lady Wildcats will face Heritage at 6 p.m. in a game played at Loganville High School. The winner will meet Salem Monday at 7 p.m. If the Lady Wildcats win, they will get to play on their own home court. AHS is being used as extra host site for the quarterfinal rounds due to the tournament being delayed four days because of weather conditions.
The AHS boys will try to punch their ticket to the state tournament when they play the Loganville High School Red Devils. The game will be at LHS at 8:30 p.m. Monday. Semifinal games will be Tuesday with consolation rounds and finals on Wednesday.
Games could not begin Friday since area school systems remained closed.
