Super Saturday Preview – 8 games February 26th
Normally the last Saturday of Tourney Week is Championship Saturday, but with the postponements of the Class C semifinals on Friday, Saturday has turned into Super Saturday, with 8 games scheduled. There will be 2 sessions, with the morning session including the Class D and B Girls and Boys Regional Finals and then the 2nd session including all 4 Class C semifinals.
Even though Ticketmaster was showing that tickets were not available, they ARE. The Cross Insurance Center was trying to work with Ticketmaster to reflect the change in the schedules and the fact that there are only 2 sessions on Saturday, rather than the 4 originally planned. Tickets previously purchased will be honored
All of Saturday's games except for the last Class C Boy's semifinal will be broadcast on 92.9 The Ticket, online on 92.9 Internet Radio, on our free downloadable APP and on any Alexa-enabled device. At 8:45 p.m. we will be broadcasting the Nokomis-Brewer Class A Boy's Final from Augusta.
