TRM’s girls and varsity boys will play for the regular season area championship Friday in Evergreen as they take on the Hillcrest Jaguars.
Both TRM’s girls and boys are 3-0 in area play and have defeated Hillcrest once already this season in Brewton.
With a win for both teams, they will clinch the regular season area championship and host the area tournament. With a loss, the teams will be tied and the area championship and tourney host will come down to a coin flip.
Following Friday’s game at Hillcrest, TRM will have only three more games left on the schedule. The Tigers will play at Andalusia Saturday; at home against Georgiana on Tues., Jan. 27; and will close out the regular season at home against W.S. Neal on Fri., Jan. 30.
