Jeffersonville High School – Pat Hennegan, Sports Information Director
Jeffersonville basketball sectional preview(s) is below. The post season has arrived! The Red Devils (8-13) have ended the season on a bit of a roll; but all teams start they tourney 0-0 and hope springs eternal! The team (at least the coaches) will probably be in Seymour Tuesday night to watch Jennings County and Bedford N.L. and then turn their attention to that game’s winner and a meeting in the Sectional semi-finals Friday night.
