The awards program will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the high school cafeteria. All athletes meet in the cafeteria for special awards before moving to classrooms for individual sport awards.

The Lady Lion basketball team will host Greenwood at 6 p.m. Saturday in Memorial Gym. This will give area fans the first look at the 2012-13 squad and the redesigned floor in Memorial Gym.
