But the best basketball in the county was being played in Class AAAA by the Woodland-Henry Lady Wolfpack.
Behind seniors Lindsey Reed, Morgan Jones and Nicole Findura, the Lady Wolfpack advanced to the third round of the playoffs.
Woodland also finished with a 27-3 overall record and a 14-1 subregion mark.
Solid contributors Mecca Sneed and Aaliyah Dotson are back as seniors along with sophomore Zaundra Stevens hoping for another successful campaign, and freshman Vanessa Blagmon is expected to assist them in their quest.
The Lady Wolfpack begin their season at home this Friday against Heritage.
Dutchtown is in the same region and looking to improve upon a 17-7 overall record and 11-4 subregion mark. The Lady Bulldogs will have to do so without 1,000-point scorer Domonique Clune, who is now a member of the Jacksonville State women’s basketball team.
Eagle’s Landing, Stockbridge and Locust Grove combined to win just 11 games last season but are looking forward to the fresh start.
In Class AAAAAA, Luella is coming off a sixth consecutive playoff appearance and lost just three seniors from last year’s team.
