Clarksville, TN – The countdown to the end of the high school basketball regular season continues. Less than 20 days remain until a regular season champion is crowned and the district tournament begins. The race has only gotten tighter since the second half of the season began.
Only two games separate the four top ranked District 10-AAA girls basketball teams with six or seven games left in the regular season. As of Sunday, January 18th, two teams are tied at the top of the district and they will face each other in a pivotal game Tuesday, January 20th.
Clarksville High Girls Basketball is on a 10 game winning streak.
The Clarksville High Lady Wildcats (13-8) extended their current win streak to 10 games last week. They defeated both the Henry County Lady Patriots and the Northeast Lady Eagles. The Lady Wildcats have clawed their way to a tie with the Rossview Lady Hawks at the top of the district. It was the Lady Hawks who dealt them their last loss by just two points, 37-39, back on December 9th. That game was at Rossview. This Tuesday they get a rematch at home.
Week 9 Recap
The road to the regular season title still has to go through the Rossview Lady Hawks (12-5). They have won three of their last four games including splitting games last week. After losing a close game to the West Creek Lady Coyote’s on Tuesday, 34-38, they rebounded with a win against the Northwest Lady Vikings Friday night. With one win over the red hot Lady Wildcats already, another win against them this Tuesday will go a long way to solidify their chance to repeat as regular season district champs this year.
Rossview Girl’s Basketball takes care of Northwest 49-24.
