Both the Page High boys and girls basketball teams are in the state tournament, with the Lady Sand Devils earning a sixth seed, which carries a first-round bye.
The boys’ invitation was less certain — they’d failed to qualify for their sectional tournament — but they made it as the 19th seed among the 24 teams now playing for the Arizona Division III championship.
They travel to Tuba City Feb. 12 to face the 14th-seeded Warriors. Game time is 7 p.m., after this issue of the Chronicle went to press. The teams split two regular season games, each winning on the other’s home court.
The girls play Feb. 16 at Northern Arizona University against the winner of #11 Fountain Hills versus #22 Blue Ridge, which is scheduled to be played Feb. 13. The Devils haven’t faced either team this season.
The Lady Sand Devils are defending Division III state champions.
The teams, seedings and schedules were announced Feb. 10 by the Arizona Interscholastic Association.For the complete article see the 02-13-2013 issue.
