North Suncoast: The week ahead

The week ahead

Some of the can't-miss events on the North Suncoast:

Girls basketball, Nature Coast (12-4) at Gulf (13-2), 7 tonight: This marks the only meeting between these teams this season. The Sharks swept the series last season.

Girls basketball, Seffner Christian (6-4) at Hernando Christian (5-2), 6 tonight: Key district game should boost winner to second place. Lions are led by Remi Manuel and her 12.8 points per game.

Girls soccer, Mitchell (13-1-2) at Tampa Prep (10-3-3), 8 p.m. Wednesday: The Terrapins have three losses but should never be underestimated at home. The Mustangs are looking to add some solid victories to their resume. A game in December between the teams was rained out.

Girls soccer, River Ridge (13-1-1) at Lakeland George Jenkins (14-0-1), 8 p.m. Wednesday: The Royal Knights have proved to be strong on the North Suncoast. A match against a nationally ranked opponent on the road should be a great test.

Boys basketball, Sunlake tournament, 4 p.m. Wednesday: This one kicks off with Mitchell and Zephyrhills battling head to head. The tournament continues through Friday's championship game.

Boys soccer, Tallahassee Lincoln (14-0-1) at Land O'Lakes (11-2-1), 7:30 p.m. Friday: The Gators have had a tradition of folding in the playoffs. Coach Mark Pearson's hope is to bulk up the schedule this month to prepare for the postseason. This should be a great test.
