Lady Devils announce tentative basketball schedule

TIFTON — High school basketball season is coming. It may not even be football season yet and it may be six months off, but Julie Conner and the Tift County Lady Devils already have plans for 2014-15 as she announced a tentative schedule Thursday.

The Lady Devils, like all Tift athletic teams, will be staying in Region 1-AAAAAA. Most of the opponents in the division will be the same, but Coffee, Camden County and Brunswick were lost in the shakeup. Camden remained on the football schedule, but the GHSA has moved them to Class AAAAA for all other sports and the Lady Devils have elected not schedule them in the regular season.

Conner has kept Coffee, though, around as a non-region opponent. They play Dec. 19 and Jan. 31, the latter being senior night.

Lee County joins Lowndes, Colquitt County and Valdosta as region opponents.  New team in the league Lee will be the region opener, set to take place Dec. 13.

There will be a Thanksgiving series at home this year. Tift will be playing Worth County and Fitzgerald. Conner said that other area teams will also be on the court. They will be playing in two more holiday series in December. Conner said assistant coach Erick Willis had managed to get them into a tournament in Henry County running from Dec. 20-23. A week later, they will again participate in the Colquitt Shootout in Moultrie.

The team has retained its rivalry with Westover and continues its annual game with Buford. They will play in Tifton Nov. 22. The two met in Buford last year and Tifton two years ago. Also preserved is the team's trip to Florida, though this one takes place later in the year than usual. They are scheduled to play at Palatka Jan. 9 and Bartram Trail the next day.

Tift also has games against Thomasville and the Lady Devils have another regular  season game with Fitzgerald in December.
