Both the 2019 55th District Boys and Girls Championships will be decided this week as games will be held Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at Jackson City School in Jackson, and the Boys and Girls Championship games will take place on Thursday and Friday at Wolfe County High School in Campton with all games slated to begin at 7:00 PM.

The Boys Tournament will begin Monday with the sole semi-final between #2 Seed Wolfe County (9-19) and #3 Seed Jackson City (7-20). The winner will advance to take on District #1 Seed Breathitt County (19-9) in the Championship Game on Thursday Night.
