Fairmont Senior received the No. 2 seed for the Challenge, and will face Cardinal No. 2 Scott at approximately 6:45 p.m. on Saturday.
The event begins at 5:15 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 20, when Big 10 No. 9 seed Liberty (Harrison) takes on non-Cardinal Conference school Charleston Catholic. The Irish finished as the Class A runner-up to state champion Tug Valley in last week's State Tournament.
The Cardinal Conference has eight members. The Big 10 is a 13-school league that includes nine Class AA schools. Class AAA schools Elkins, Preston, Buckhannon-Upshur and Lewis County are also in the league.
"We had an odd number and Liberty wanted to be a part of it so we got them a game with Catholic to fill it out," Osborne said.
Saturday's games will begin at 9 a.m., with No. 8 seeds Tolsia and Lincoln squaring off. Following the opener, No. 3 seeds Mingo Central and Bridgeport tip off at approximately 10:45 a.m., with No. 4 seeds Chapmanville and North Marion playing at 12:15 p.m.
No. 5 seed Sissonville will play East Fairmont at 1:45, followed by games between No. 6 seeds Herbert Hoover and Grafton and No. 7 seeds Wayne and Philip Barbour.
"Grafton and Philip Barbour are playing in another tournament on Thursday and Friday of that week, so they asked if they can be scheduled later in the day," Osborne said.
The idea for the event began with conversations between Osborne and Bennett late last summer. The leagues had originally scheduled a Dec. 14 date for the challenge, but had to push it back one week. The cheerleading State Tournament had already been scheduled to take place at the Civic Center on the challenge's original date.
