Tournament sites awarded by AAA

Thursday, January 19, 2012

The southern part of Arkansas will be a hot place for high school basketball in late Feburary and early March, with four state basketball tournaments being awarded to that part of the state in the Arkansas Activites Association's Board of Directors' annual winter meeting, held Jan. 12 in North Little Rock.

The Class 1A state basketball tournament, held last year in Calico Rock, will take place at Southern Arkansas University in Magnolia this year. The Class 3A state tourney will take place in Fordyce, while Class 4A teams will travel to Pine Bluff for tournament play.

But the local region didn't get completely shut out of state tournament action -- Cedar Ridge High School in Newark will play host to the Class 2A state tourney.

Cave City High School was selected to host the Class 4A East Regional Tournament, while Izard County High School will once again play host to the Class 1A Region 2 Tourney.

This spring, Izard County will also bring the Class 1A Region 2 baseball and softball tournaments to the Cougar Sports Complex in Brockwell.

Following is a rundown of schools that have been awarded regional and state tournaments in basketball, baseball and softball:
