HOT TOPIC: It is time for girls basketball playoffs.
Tonight, Coach Emily Martinez will lead her Malakoff Lady Tigers into action against the Alba-Golden Lady Panthers, a team Malakoff scrimmaged at the start of the season.
The bi-district game is set for 7 p.m. at Brownsboro.
The Lady Tigers finished the regular season with a record of 15-12 overall and 10-4 in district.
This is the third consecutive year the Lady Tigers have earned a postseason berth, and Martinez hopes this is the year the girls can get their first playoff win.
“I think if our girls show up to play, we have a good chance,” Martinez said. “Alba is a good team and they play hard, but when our girls play together I think we are hard to beat.”
Henderson County Now will be at the game, so watch Facebook for updates.
Also in playoff action tonight is Mabank, which will be taking on Spring Hill. That game is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Grand Saline.
The Athens City Council will be holding its regular meeting tonight at 5:30 p.m. in the council chambers. The agenda looks pretty routine and is highlighted by getting ready for the upcoming election.
