TSSAA Hoops: Girls’ region semifinal recap

The TSSAA region semifinals for boys’ and girls’ basketball are underway and six Chattanooga area girls’ teams took the court on Monday, hoping to secure their spot in the region championship.

Four schools (Meigs County, Signal Mountain, Red Bank and McMinn Central) qualified for the semis in the Class AA East Regional. The Class AA semifinal round was played at East Ridge High School, giving none of the four teams a true home-field advantage.

In Class AAA, Bradley Central and Rhea County duked it out for a spot in the East Regional championship game. Both teams had to travel White County High School to play, which is over an hour and a half away from both schools.

Below is an updated scoreboard from each semifinal contest involving a Scenic City prep team. Girls’ brackets for each regional and each classification can be found here.
