Competition figures to be intense tonight and Saturday when the Jefferson City Jays host 13 other teams in the Class 4 District 3 Tournament at Fleming Fieldhouse.
"It will be the toughest district of any class in the state, bar none," Jays coach Phil Cagle said.
A bold statement? Yes. Is it true? Very likely.
