EUFAULA â€” The Spiro High School basketball teams began their postseason parade in fine fashion Friday night.
The Lady Bulldogs and â€™Dogs swept the Class 3A District Tournament by posting wins over host Eufaula.
The Spiro girls beat the Lady Ironheads 47-43, then the Spiro boys handled the Ironheads 71-53.
Both Spiro teams are one win away from not only playing for a regional title, but making it to next week's Class 3A Area Tournament at Fort Gibson.
The Lady Bulldogs, who went to last year's Class 3A State Tournament, and the â€™Dogs will play in this week's Class 3A Regional Tournament, which will begin for them at home as both teams will play Keys (Park Hill) at 6:30 (girls) and 8 p.m. (boys) on Thursday at the Spiro Gym.
The winners will play in the regional title games at 6:30 and 8 p.m., respectively, on Saturday at Carl Albert State College's Mick Thompson Fieldhouse â€” and will automatically qualify for next week's Class 3A Area Tournament at Fort Gibson.
Thursday night's losers will play at 1:30 and 3 p.m., respectively, Friday afternoon at CASC and must win Saturday afternoon's consolation championship games at 1:30 and 3 p.m., respectively, to advance to the area tournament.
