Lancaster is in first place in the league with a 17-1 overall record and a 7-1 district mark. Colonial Beach and Northumberland both have two district losses and several games this week, which could bring up a tie or two heading into next week’s district tournament that begins Tuesday, February 12, at Lancaster. The semifinals will be held Tuesday and the tournament championship on Friday, February 15, at 6 p.m.

The Lady Devils held Washington & Lee scoreless in the second half last Tuesday and went on a 27-point run in the third quarter to blow their 11-point lead wide open for a 68-20 rout of the Eagles.
