Eureka, Berryville teams playing in Bancorp South Airedale Classic

Friday, January 2, 2004
The Berryville and Eureka Springs teams tangled earlier this season, with the Highlanders coming out on top in that meeting. If both teams won their opening game at the Airedale Classic on Monday, they would face off today at 5 p.m. Above, Berryville's Taylor Deweese and Josh Kriesel beat Eureka's Cash Covington and Andy Kriesel to a rebound, as Victor Smith watched.

It may be the holidays, but the Eureka Springs and Berryville senior high basketball teams aren't sitting home idle.

Both schools' boys and girls teams are playing this week in the Bancorp South Airedale Classic in Alma, with three games guaranteed Monday through Wednesday this week.

Eight schools have entered the Classic besides Berryville and Eureka Springs, with Lamar, Lavaca, Farmington, Hot Springs Lakeside, Elkins, and host Alma filling the brackets.

There is a winner and loser's side to each bracket, with a consolation game on each side if a team gets beat in their second game. Any way they play, they'll get three games in this week, which should help all the teams after New Year's, when conference play begins.

Here are the matchups that opened the tournament on Monday.
