February 20, 2003

Finally it seems the weather will permit the Hagerstown Community College men's and women's basketball teams to host their Maryland JuCo Conference Tournament first-round games.

After several reschedulings, both games are now set for today.

The HCC men host Baltimore at 2 p.m., followed by the Hawks vs. Howard in women's action at 4.

The winners advance to the elite eight, which will be played at Frederick Community College on the men's side and at Garrett on the women's.

There are a handful of area prep basketball games scheduled for today.

Heritage Academy hosts the semifinals of the Mason Dixon Christian Conference tourney. The Heritage girls play Calvary at 5:30, before the Eagles boys take on Grace Academy at 7.

In the PIAA District 5 Class A boys tournament, Southern Fulton hosts Turkeyfoot and McConnellsburg hosts Shanksville. Both first-round games start at 7.
