The Newport Grammar School basketball teams will hit the
hardwood tonight as they look to claim the TMSAA Class AA Area 3 championships at Pigeon Forge
The Lady Warriors, which defeated Rush Strong Middle School in Monday
night’s semifinal round by one point, will play No. 2 seed New Center Middle for their
championship in the game that begins at 7 p.m.
The Lady Warriors played for last year’s
Area 3 title, but fell 44-38 to New Center. Newport Grammar held a 10-point second half lead in the
game, before falling in last year’s championship battle.
Meanwhile the top-seeded Warriors
will play for the championship against No. 2 Rush Strong Middle School. The Warriors, which advanced
by beating No. 4 seed New Center by two points on Monday, fell at Rush Strong in the regular season
meeting earlier this month.
The game is slated to begin 8:15 p.m.
