The Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School boys’ basketball team fell to Franklin County last Friday in the District 4-1A title game, but reached the Region 2-1A playoffs with its runner-up finish.
The Tiger Sharks (13-12) will visit Chipley tonight in a region semifinal. Tip-off is 8 p.m. ET.
The winner will face the winner of Baker at Franklin County Tuesday for the region title.
“It has been a tough season and the kids have fought hard and battled every game,” said Coach Sandy Quinn, Jr. “We lost a key player early in the season and now he has returned for the playoffs. I feel good about the playoffs.”
“I told my seniors that its time for them to take their game to the next level. I explained to all my underclassman that they will play a vital role in us trying to win the next few games.
“I feel great about this team. We have had a lot of adversity but that didn’t stop the kids for working hard and playing hard.”
The Tiger Sharks reached the district title game with a 61-48 semifinal win over host Wewahitchka.
Jan Lowe led all scorers with 20 points and Isaiah Wright added 14 points for Port St. Joe.
