There is a logjam for fourth place in the 2A North at the midpoint of the girls basketball regular season. St. Johns (7-0) and Alchesay (6-1) are the top two teams, with Sanders Valley (5-2) in third.

The Lady Redskins won three North region games last week, including a 62-56 win at Sanders Valley. This week, the St. Johns girls are at Keams Canyon Hopi on Tuesday for a 6 p.m. game. On Saturday, Jan. 25, the Redskins are at home for a 6 o’clock game against Pinon.

The Alchesay girls won three region games last week to push their win streak to five. This week, the Lady Falcons are at Many Farms on Tuesday for a 6 p.m. game, then they host Tuba City Greyhills at 3 o’clock on Saturday, Jan. 25.

The Round Valley Lady Elks were hoping to win their fourth game in the last five and stay within striking distance of the three region leaders in Saturday’s game at Many Farms, but the Elks lost a close one, 42-36. The Round Valley girls have a chance to even the slate and have all week to prepare as they next play host to Many Farms at noon on Saturday, Jan. 25, in Eagar.

There are two unbeaten teams in the 3A East race. Holbrook is 4-0 and Snowflake is 2-0 to lead the region. Those are also the only East teams with winning records. The Lady Lobos host Holbrook for first place in tonight’s 6 o’clock game. On Friday, Jan. 24, the Snowflake girls will be the visitors as they take on Show Low at 6 p.m. at Lakeside Blue Ridge.

Blue Ridge moved to fourth place with a 47-36 win against visiting Show Low on Friday and the Lady Jackets made it two in a row with a 48-34 win at Safford on Saturday. The wins snapped a four-game losing streak to begin the new year.

Blue Ridge plays host to Winslow at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 21 and the Jackets travel to Pima for a non-conference game at 5:30 on Saturday, Jan. 25.

The Show Low girls are at Payson at 6 on Tuesday, then have the home game against Snowflake at Lakeside Blue Ridge on Friday, Jan. 24.

The Mogollon girls solidified first in the 1A Central region with a win at second-place Williams, 53-46, on Friday, and a 39-16 win at home against Ash Fork/Seligman on Saturday. The Mustangs have just four games left, including three this week, all on the road — at Mayer on Tuesday, at Joseph City on Friday and at Grand Canyon on Saturday. Tip-off for all three games is at 5:30 p.m. The Mustangs host Mayer on Jan. 29 to close the regular season.

The Dishchii’Bikoh Lady Wildcats, locked in a tight battle in the top half of a tough 1A East, began a three-game slate this week with a road game at Grand Canyon on Monday, Jan. 20. The ‘Cats are at home to host Gilbert Arete Prep for a region game on Friday at 5:30 and to host Joseph City at 5:30 on Saturday, Jan. 25.
