Time is rapidly winding down in the winter high school sports season, particularly in Massachusetts.
Which means that the local “March Madness” is close to happening.
Regular season events in virtually every sport conclude in Massachusetts this week and the highly popular basketball and hockey tournaments begin next week. MIAA basketball pairings are announced Friday with hockey to follow on Saturday.
The Eagle-Tribune will publish the pairings on the day following when they are announced.
The regular season in basketball and hockey continue in New Hampshire for another week before tournament action gets underway.
Boys and girls basketball in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire concludes with the tournament finals March 15. Hockey ends March 15 in New Hampshire and Match 16 in Massachusetts.
Meanwhile, state tournaments in wrestling in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire are set for this weekend.
