JH GIRLS BASKETBALL ANNOUNCEMENTS (2020)
Open basketball workouts/tryouts will begin this week and continue throughout January. EVAC will only offer both teams if there are enough girls and coaches to field two teams. This decision will be made by mid-January. EVAC Junior High teams typically field 6th-8th grade girls and most likely 4th-5th grade players would play elementary. It is possible 6th grade girls could play on either team and those decisions will be made on an individual basis.
