Both Central High School Lady Raider and Red Raider basketball teams will be hosting elimination games on Monday in the Region 4-AAA quarterfinals.
The stakes are simple. Win and advance. Or lose and the season is over.
The Lady Raiders (27-1 overall) will host Rockvale at 6 p.m. at The Patch. With a win, CHS will host the winner of Oakland and Lawrence County on Tuesday. With a win on Tuesday, the Lady Raiders would guarantee a spot in the region championship and the state sectional game (one win shy of a state tournament trip).
Meanwhile, the Raiders (14-11overal) will host Riverdale at 8 p.m. Monday at The Patch. With a win over Riverdale, the Raiders will advance to the region semi-finals on Tuesday against either Columbia or Blackman. If it is Blackman, the Raiders will travel. If it is Columbia, the Raiders will host.
