By TAYLOR MITCHELL
For the past three months, football has captivated the attention of the sporting world. However, as October comes to a close, so is the regular season for high school football.
As one sport comes to a close, another is just beginning.
This week, local basketball teams will make their final preparations for the regular season with a pair of preseason tournaments set to begin this week.
The first will feature the Manchester and Benton Academies girls basketball teams at the Preseason Canton Tournament. The other is the annual Yazoo County Classic, featuring teams from Yazoo City and Yazoo County High Schools.
Action in Canton will begin this Monday and will last throughout the week. The tournament is an excellent tune-up opportunity for the Lady Mavs and Lady Raiders as their seasons officially begin the following week. Benton opens it season against Deer Creek at home on Nov. 7, while Manchester begins play Nov.8 against East Rankin.
The Yazoo County Classic is scheduled to begin next Saturday, Nov. 6, and will last _ days. The tournament will feature both boys and girls teams from local high schools.
