Eight Times Area teams have qualified for the District 3 Basketball Championships, according to official brackets released on Sunday.

Defending district Delone Catholic highlights four local girls’ teams in the playoff mix. The Squirettes, who won the D3 Class 3A title last season, are the top seed in 4A. They receive a first-round bye and will play Friday, when they could see familiar faces on the opposite end of the court should Bermudian Springs take care of things in its opener.

The Eagles, seeded eighth in the 4A field, host Wyomissing in a first-round matchup on Wednesday, with the winner heading to McSherrystown two days later.

The Gettysburg girls locked up the No. 5 seed in 5A, earning a home game against No. 12 Manheim Central.

The Biglerville girls are returning to the playoffs for the first time in six years after landing the No. 7 seed in 3A. The Canners (7-9) travel to face No. 2 Upper Dauphin (15-3) on Wednesday.

On the boys’ side, Littlestown earned a No. 4 seed and first-round bye in 4A after its 15-3 regular season. The Bolts play host to No. 5 Oley Valley on Thursday.

Littlestown is joined by Bermudian Springs in the 4A field. The Eagles (11-6) enter as the No. 10 seed and will visit No. 7 Bishop McDevitt (10-7) in a first-round matchup Tuesday evening. Should Berm win its opener, it would then face No. 2 Middletown (12-4) on Thursday.

Biglerville nabbed the last spot in the 3A field at 3-15, booking a date with top-seeded Lancaster Catholic (14-3) on Tuesday.

A late start didn’t derail the South Western boys, who are No. 15 in Class 5A. The Mustangs travel to No. 2 Lower Dauphin (15-3) on Tuesday.
