DAYTON — The 2019 season runners up in Division II garnered plenty of respect during this past weekend’s high school girls basketball sectional tournament draw, and five other Greene County area teams earned top-10 seeds in their respective tournament brackets.

Carroll earned the No. 1 seed in the Division II sectional tournament. The Patriots (15-5), who battled and lost to Toledo Rogers in the Division II state championship game last season in Columbus, will open at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 15 against 13th seeded Dayton Marshall at Lebanon High School.

All three Greene County area Division IV teams received top-10 seed placements, with Legacy Christian topping the list with a No. 2 seeding. The Knights (14-3) are tied for the Metro Buckeye Conference lead. They’ll open sectional tourney play at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 15 at Monroe High against New Miami.

Legacy may have inadvertently earned itself a bit of respect during the tournament draw, too. While the Knights chose to play in the Monroe 1 Bracket, top seed Cincinnati Country Day, third-seeded Cedarville and No. 4 seed Miami Valley Christian Academy all jumped into the Monroe 2 Bracket.

Cedarville (9-10) opens that same Saturday Feb. 15 with a 2 p.m. game against No. 11 seeded Lockland in the Monroe 2 Bracket.

No. 6 seeded Yellow Springs (15-4) has a first-round bye in the Brookville 1 Bracket of the tourney. The Bulldogs will play either No. 7 Covington or No. 5 Springfield Catholic Central at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 18 for their first game, at Brookville High School.

Greeneview is the county’s lone Division III representative. The Rams (9-10) were seeded No. 12 and will take on familiar Ohio Heritage Conference foe Greenon at noon Feb. 15 at Covington High in a first-round game.

Four area teams are in the Division I sectional tournament brackets, with Bellbrook garnering the highest seed among them at No. 5. The Golden Eagles (19-3) will have a Feb. 15 first-round opener with No. 14 Springfield, at 3 p.m. at Vandalia Butler High in the Dayton 3 Bracket.

Beavercreek emerged as the No. 6 seed in the Dayton 2 Bracket, in Troy. The Beavers (12-8) have a first-round matchup against No. 13 New Carlisle Tecumseh at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 13 at Troy High School.

Fairborn (5-15) was named D-I’s No. 17 seed, and will open Dayton 1 Bracket play against third seeded Centerville at 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 15 at Troy. Fellow Miami Valley League member Xenia (4-16) is the Dayton 3 Bracket’s No. 18 seed. The Buccaneers will open at noon Feb. 15 against second seeded Huber Heights Wayne.

Senior guard Jillian Roberts (13) and the rest of the Carroll Patriots girls high school basketball team earned the No. 1 seeding in the Dayton area’s Division II sectional tournament this season.
