While there are a total 13 boys and girls single games, two of the area’s major tournaments — the East Baton Rouge Parish Girls Tournament and Livingston Parish Tournament for boys and girls teams — also begin Tuesday.
The two traditional tournaments help tip off a busy weeklong schedule that includes five other tournaments.
Both the East Baton Rouge tourney and the Livingston Parish Tournament run through Saturday.
Broadmoor High is the host site for the East Baton Rouge girls tourney. Zachary High and host Broadmoor are the top seeds for the tourney and will not play until Thursday’s quarterfinal round.
The Tuesday schedule includes four games starting at 3 p.m.
Meanwhile, French Settlement is the host site for the Livingston tourney. Denham Springs is the top seed in the boys and girls divisions. Live Oak is seeded second among boys teams, while Walker is the No. 2 seed in the girls division.
Like the East Baton Rouge tourney, the No. 1 seeds won’t play until Thursday. Tuesday’s action includes four games that start at 3 p.m.
One of the Baton Rouge area’s oldest boys tournaments, the Charles T. Kinsley Memorial Tournament at Central High, starts Wednesday, along with the East Feliciana Invitational for boys and girls teams and the 13th Episcopal Round-Robin for boys teams.
Scotlandville, the Class 5A runner-up the past two years, helps headline the field for the Kinsley tournament that also continues through Saturday.
The Episcopal Round-Robin is headlined by two teams that were part of the Louisiana High School Athletic Association’s Top 28 boys tournament last spring.
Southern Lab was the 1A runner-up and host Episcopal was a 2A semifinalist.
Teams from the Felicianas and Florida Parishes make up the field for the East Feliciana Invitational.
The University High Classic, a girls tourney, begins Thursday and runs through Saturday, also using a round-robin format.
Also part of the schedule is Louisiana School for the Deaf’s Cajun Classic for boys and girls teams set for Friday and Saturday. Schools for the Deaf from Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas will compete.
