After falling out of the region tournament last year in the opening round, the Jefferson Dragons were determined not to let history repeat itself this year.
The Dragons not only assured history would not repeat itself, but went on to win the region title Tuesday night with a 58-57 victory over Riverside Military Academy.
State tournament play starts Friday, with Jefferson playing host to either Manchester or Spencer from Columbus. The start time for Friday’s game has yet to be determined. Fans can call the school later this week for the start time.
