Playoff schedule set for winter sports
PRESQUE ISLE, Maine (WAGM) -This is the final week of the regular season for County basketball teams, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be more basketball for the next two weeks.
The Aroostook League playoffs begin next week.
Tim Watt:” We are going with two divisions. The D teams are Division 2 and the C and B teams are in Division 1. The ones that have eight teams one will play eight and two seven and so fourth. If there are only 7 teams then number one gets a bye.
The top seed in both Division one girls and Division 2 boys and girls will get a bye because of having seven teams in their divisions. The seedings will be based on team records.
Watt:” We are trying to keep the accurate the best we can. Hopefully by Saturday night or Sunday we will have the final standings so the higher seed can set the time for the games.”
Once champions are crowned in the various divisions the League is hoping to crown an overall champion.
