The Phil Campbell Bobcats captured their seventh straight area title, beating the Danville Hawks 54-50. The Bobcats fell in subregion play for the second straight year, this time to Childersburg, 50-36.

Phil Campbell built up a ten point lead by the end of the third quarter, 47-37. The Bobcats had to hold off a late Danville surge where the Hawks outscored Phil Campbell 13-7 in the final period of play.

Macy Hardy and Leela Baker led Phil Campbell with 19 points and 18 points respectively. Ayla Stowe and Hannah Welborn scored eight points each. Sidda Rogers finished with one point.
