Carterville Lady Lions Looking for 7th Straight Regional Championship Tonight

CARTERVILLE — The Carterville Lady Lions are not only playing for a regional championship tonight, they are playing for their seventh regional title in a row.

But, Carterville girls basketball coach Matt Crain says while the success his program has had shouldn’t be overlooked, this year’s team hasn’t won that regional championship yet.

The Lions will face the Centralia Annies tonight at 7 p.m. for the Class 3A Regional Championship from Carbondale. The winner will play the winner of the Mater Dei Regional on Tuesday.
