The region recipe for Rutherford was fairly simple starting with last Thursday’s quarterfinal win against Wakulla.

Boiled down, it was reduced to win and stay at home.

Simple on paper, anyway.

Rickards brings its tradition-rich program to Springfield 7 p.m. Tuesday for a Region 1-5A semifinal. The other half of the bracket finds Bishop Kenney vs. Baker County. The winners meet 7 p.m. Saturday for a ticket to Lakeland and the Final Four.

Should the Rams, 24-2, overcome Rickards, 15-9, the region championship would be played on their court.

Also Tuesday, in Region 1-4A Marianna gets a rematch with Pensacola Catholic, the Bulldogs falling at home to the Crusaders in their district final. That semifinal will be played at Catholic.

And three Class 1A teams enter the semifinal round after a week layoff because of the smaller number of schools in that classification.
