The tournament will be played in the Opp High School Gymnasium with the first two matches of the day set to begin at 9 a.m.

The Area 2 Runner-up Andalusia Lady Bulldogs will face Area 4 Champion Geneva in the other 9 a.m. match on court two.

The second pair of matches are set to begin at 10 a.m. with the Area 2 Champion Opp Lady Bobcats going up against the Area 4 Runner-up Ashford Lady Yellow Jackets.

Gulf Shores, the Area 1 Runner-up, will play Dale County, the Area 3 Champion, in the other 10 a.m. match on Saturday.

The double-elimination tournament continues throughout the day with the Regional A Championship Match set to take place at 4 p.m.

If the team out of the loser's bracket wins the first championship match, a second and deciding match is slated to be played at approximately 5 p.m.
