Flashes to face Cathedral in opener

[2/15/04]St. Aloysius was hoping a win over Mississippi School for the Deaf would propel them to a No. 3 seed and avoid a first-round matchup against Natchez Cathedral in the Division 7-1A Tournament.

The Flashes’ wish was not granted.

Because St. Al lost to West Lincoln twice, and MSD split with West Lincoln in the regular season, the Flashes will open the tournament on Tuesday against the archrival Green Wave.

The Flashes (10-15, 8-4) will play Cathedral at 8 p.m. Tuesday.

The Lady Flashes will play on Monday at 8 p.m. against Enterprise-Lincoln.

The top two teams from the division tournament advance to play in the state playoff satellite game. The winner of the satellite game advances to the South State Tournament.

The Division 6-5A Tournament will start at Warren Central on Tuesday, and at least one Warren County boys team will advance to the state playoffs.

The Vikings will open on Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. against rival Vicksburg High.

The game will be the final matchup of four games being played on Tuesday at WC.

The Vicksburg girls will open against second-seeded Forest Hill at 4 p.m. The Missy Gators lost to Forest Hill twice this season.

That game will be followed by Natchez’s boys against top-seeded Forest Hill at 5:30 p.m.

The top-seeded Warren Central Lady Vikes will open against Natchez at 7.
