The Piggott Junior Lady Mohawks, Junior Lady Cougars and Cougar junior boys were all eliminated from their respective district tournaments Thursday afternoon. The PHS girls fell to the host Lady Mustangs at Hoxie and the Cougar squads both fell at home to Marmaduke.

Tonight, Friday, Feb. 9, marks senior night at Rector High School as they host the Piggott Mohawks in senior girls and boys play. Senior night activities are set for 5:40 with the girls game to tip afterward, followed by the boys contest.

Saturday's 1A/2A junior district tournament schedule at Rector has been adjusted due to schedule conflicts, and there will be no third-fourth place games. Instead, the girls game will tip at 2 p.m. followed by the boys contest, with both games featuring Marmaduke and Maynard. Afterward, the regular season and tournament champs and runner-ups will be recognized, along with the All-District and All-Tournament selections.

Senior district tournament play begins Monday in both the 3A-3 at Piggott and the 1A-3 East at Armorel. At PHS, the Lady Mohawks will take on Riverside at 4 p.m. Monday with the boys playing Manila Tuesday in the late game.

The Cougars will take on KIPP-Blytheville at 7 p.m. Monday at Armorel, with the girls slated to face Armorel at 5:30 on Tuesday in first round
