The quest for the District 1-5A girls basketball title has been as close I thought it would be at this point in the season. Bel Air, Coronado and Franklin are all 5-1, El Dorado and Eastwood are 3-3 and Americas is 2-4. Games have been tightly contested and expect this year's race to come down to the end. Bel Air is the defending champion and has been steady all season. Coronado, El Dorado and Franklin are much improved over last year. El Dorado owns a win against Bel Air.
This Friday offers up two intriguing battles between El Dorado and Franklin and Bel Air and Coronado. Next week, El Dorado and Eastwood do battle, while Franklin and Coronado face off. Should be an interesting next month as 1-5A tries to figure out the district champion and the four playoff teams.
