Four is a Crowd in Sub Region Race

Four teams are within one game of the top spot in the sub region 3B-AAAA regular season standings.  The two top teams will eventually earn a bye into the second round of the region tournament.  With four sub region games remaining, Tuesday night's action promises to be pivotal and exciting!

Butler rides a three game winning streak into Tuesday's showdown with Hephzibah.  The Bulldogs' only two sub region losses have come while playing without senior forward Ronald Jones.  Butler has defeated area powers Laney and Glenn Hills since Jones' return.  And the Bulldogs defeated Richmond at home Friday (see highlights above).  Currently tied for second place with Cross Creek and Burke County, Butler will aim to continue its positive momentum Tuesday.

Cross Creek will travel to Richmond and attempt to more strongly secure its position in the standings.  After losing at home in the opener to Burke County, the Razorbacks have won 4 of its last 5 sub region games.  Friday's victory versus Burke County (see below) should give the team momentum on the road Tuesday.

Glenn Hills defeated Hephzibah Friday to secure the top spot in the standings.  A win Tuesday at home versus Burke County would do two things:  keep the Spartans in sole possession of first place and remove the Bears, at least temporarily, from one of the top two spots in the sub region standings.  However, a Burke County road win could potentially continue the congestion at the top of the sub region standings.
