LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The 7th annual KTRE Pineywoods Showdown, which pits high-school basketball seniors from the counties of Angelina and Nacogdoches County, will be held Monday, April 20, at the Lufkin Panther Gym.
The girls' game starts at 6 p.m. and the boys will follow after.
Admission is $5 at the door. Children under the age of 5 can get in free.
The sixth year saw both Nacogdoches County teams break five-year losing streaks to Angelina. The Nacogdoches County girls took a 67-36 win and the boys followed with a 61-54 victory.
"The game gets more exciting each year," said event coordinator Jeff Awtrey. "A friendly but intense rivalry got even better when Nacogdoches broke the streak."
As always, every team has chosen a charity to play for. The winning teams' charities take the profits from the gate.
