Eagles No. 2 seed at Lakeside

Geneva, Perry, Jefferson, Conneaut, Edgewood among 13-team field in girls sectional-district

Two area teams earned top-four seeds at the Lakeside Division II girls basketball sectional-district tournament at the draw held Sunday afternoon at Kenston High School.

Coach Nancy Barbo’s Geneva Eagles were accorded the second seed in the 13-team field, while coach Brindi Kandel’s Perry Pirates were voted as the No. 4 seed.

In a change implemented for 2013-14 girls and boys postseason play, all sectional games will be held at the home of the higher-seeded squad, with the district tournament then shifting to Lakeside Gymnasium. The tournament had been played at Pymatuning Valley for the previous seven seasons.

Geneva (11-6) has a first-round bye and will play the winner of a sectional semifinal clash between archrivals Edgewood and Conneaut in a sectional championship game Feb. 20 at Geneva at 7 p.m.

Coach Steve Kray’s ninth-seeded Warriors (5-10) and coach Tony Pasanen’s eighth-seeded Spartans (4-14) will square off in that semifinal game Feb. 15 in Garcia Gymnasium at 7 p.m.

Perry (8-9) also has a first-round bye and will host the winner of a sectional semifinal between 12th-seeded Harvey (2-15) and fifth-seeded Lake Catholic (4-11) on Feb. 20 at 7 p.m. in Spectator Gymnasium.

The other area team in this tournament, Jefferson, was voted the seventh seed.

Coach Rod Holmes’ Falcons (5-12) will host 11th-seeded West Geauga (2-15) in a sectional semifinal Feb. 15 in Falcon Gym at 7 p.m. The winner between the Falcons and the Wolverines will earn a journey to Cleveland to take on top-seeded East Tech (13-4) in a sectional championship game Feb. 20 at 7 p.m.

The rest of the field includes third-seeded Glenville (10-2), sixth-seeded Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin (4-12), 10th-seeded St. Martin de Porres (4-7) and 13th-seeded Collinwood (4-6).

Information for the Division I and Division III sectional-district tournaments will be published as it’s reported.
