Lady Eagles to host annual Holiday Classic

By: W. Curt Vincent - Bladen Journal

ELIZABETHTOWN — The annual East Bladen Holiday Classic for varsity girls will be held Wednesday, Dec. 20, and Thursday, Dec. 21, at East Bladen High.

Designed more like a round-robin than a classic tournament, the four participating teams will play each day. Those teams include former Four County Conference foe Wallace-Rose Hill, long-ago conference foe North Brunswick, current Three Rivers Conference foe West Bladen and the host Lady Eagles.

“It should be competitive for all teams,” said East Bladen coach Patty Evers. “Wallace is new to our tourney this year because of trying to keep it at non-conference teams.

“All four teams have played close games with some strong teams this year and it looks to be a good learning experience for all of us,” she added.


The schedule



— 5 p.m., West Bladen versus North Brunswick

— 6:30 p.m., Wallace-Rose Hill versus East Bladen


— 5 p.m., Wallace-Rose Hill versus West Bladen

— 6:30 p.m., North Brunswick versus East Bladen

The lady Eagles and lady Knights will not play against each other.

Admission to the Holiday Classic will be $6 per person, which will be good for both games. There will be no passes out. Concessions will be available.
