Senior Lady Panther Jayce Buchner dishes a pass during the scrimmage last week at Russellville High School.

The high school basketball season gets underway this week for area teams. The four local teams have been hard at work gearing up for the regular season.

The ladies got it going first. Russellville and Logan County both played on Monday after the NDL press deadline. The Lady Panthers were scheduled to host Warren Central at home. The Lady Cougars played on the road at Warren East.

The Cougars start the season on Thursday at home against Clarksville Christian Academy. The Russellville Panthers will play the first game of the season on Friday at Allen County.
