BLOOMINGTON—In any tournament, a semifinal should be a close contest. Last Thursday's matchup between the ladies of Tri-Valley and LeRoy was no exception.

BLOOMINGTON – The Blue Ridge Knights gave the Tremont Turks a heck of a first quarter, but after that it was all Tremont.
The Knights fell behind 9-2, with Tyler McDonald and Max Bolliger using their length in the post to disrupt shots and to get to the basket.
DOWNS – The Tri-Valley Vikings came into a bout with 2-seeded Fieldcrest looking to spread the floor and open up space. It almost worked.

LEXINGTON — The Tri-Valley girls basketball team did not wait to bring out the heavy artillery.
