The high school basketball regular season has ended and area tournaments will be held this week.

Unfortunately, only three Blount County teams (the girls of Appalachian, Oneonta, and Hayden) won regular season titles and will host area tournaments. All of the other tournaments will be outside the county this year.

The Cleveland boys tied for the 3A Area 9 title with Ashville and Glencoe but Ashville won the coin flip and will host the tournament.

Admission for area tournaments, which is set by the state, is $6.
