The Crosett Eagles and Lady Eagles were unable to play in McGhee Monday night as shortly after arriving the power went out.

The McGehee game was the last game on the preseason schedule for the 2019 calendar year, but the Eagles and Lady Eagles will start in the Dumas Holiday Classic on Thursday and will play in other tournaments during the break.

The Lady Eagles will tip off at 7 p.m. in Dumas with the boys to play directly after.

The results of Thursday’s games will determine what time the Eagles play on Saturday.

The Eagles and Lady Eagles will also play in the Drew Central Holiday Classic in Monticello on Dec. 28 to 30. The boys placed second in the Drew Central Holiday classic last year after losing in a nail biter to Dermott.

The girls will play their first game of the tournament on Dec. 27 at 12:40 p.m. against Parkers Chapel.

The boys will play at 11:20 a.m. on Dec. 27 also against Parkers Chapel.

After the holiday break, the Eagles and Lady Eagles will travel to Monticello on Jan. 7 for their first conference game and to Magnolia on Jan. 10.

They will travel to Camden on Jan. 14 and Hamburg on Jan. 16 for the big rival game.

Their first home game of the year will be Jan. 20 when they host Jack Robey from Little Rock.

Coaches Dominic Lincolon and Shanae Govan said they are proud of what they have seen so far this preseason and excited to see how the Eagles do once conference play kicks off.

The Lady Eagles are 5-3 with their only losses to the Lakeside Beavers twice and to White Hall.

The boys are 3-3 with losses to Lakeside and Dermott.
