At the moment, there’s only one certainty in District 16-3A: the Bullard Lady Panthers are bound for the playoffs.

Everything else’s is a mystery.

Entering Friday night’s action, four teams — Chapel Hill, Gilmer, Spring Hill and Kilgore — are all even in the loss column.

Gilmer (18-11, 6-4) is off on Friday, while Spring Hill (14-16, 6-4) and Kilgore (5-4 in district) are favored against Henderson and Gladewater, respectively.

Chapel Hill (18-10, 6-4) has a tall order, however, facing district-leading Bullard (21-9, 9-1). However, a Lady Bulldogs win would go a long way in improving Chapel Hill’s playoff outlook.

There’s also a crucial matchup in 15-3A between Brownsboro (16-11, 4-4) and Canton (13-15, 3-5). The Bearettes are currently a game up on Canton for the third and final postseason spot.

In 14-4A, Hallsville (10-16, 2-6) can forge a tie with Pine Tree (14-11, 3-5) for fourth place in the league standings with a win over the Lady Pirates in Longview.

Meanwhile in 16-4A, Whitehouse (13-11, 3-5) and Jacksonville (16-15, 3-5) are tied for the fourth and final postseason spot from the district. The LadyCats host second-place John Tyler (20-10, 5-3), while Jacksonville plays host to last-place Corsicana (15-16, 1-7).
