Springville will play host to the Region 12A girls and boys basketball tournament next week.

The tournament will feature teams from Caledonia, Houston, Radio Central, Louisville, and Mixer County.

Both squads will be looking to defend their titles as both teams won the 2015 tournaments in Louisville.

However, the road will be slightly tougher for the them this year.  Both teams are entering their respective tournaments as the #4 seed, which means both will have to win a first round game to secure a birth in the playoffs.

The tournament kicks off Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 4:00 with a girls game between Houston and Caledonia.

Jim Sherwood serves as chief creative, brand strategist, lead developer, meticulous project manager, and station collaborator for all Skyrocket Radio sites and projects.

Jim got his start in radio at WLSM in the small town of Louisville, MS in 1988. Since then he has worked on-air in all day parts and has held nearly every other station position at one time or another. Jim has worked for radio stations in several states and for iHeartMedia (Clear Channel Radio), CBS Radio, Cumulus Broadcasting and a few small locally-owned stations. He even hosted a morning show on an aircraft carrier for two years while in the Navy. Jim has a passion for radio history, music, gadgets and all kinds of geeky web stuff.

After 14 years at Clear Channel Radio, Jim left the industry in 2013 to devote full-time attention to his company, Mediagin Creative, a small freelance creative agency that develops WordPress websites as well as produces commercials for radio and TV. After being asked by the Mississippi Association of Broadcasters to speak to a panel of small market station owners about the need for better websites, it became apparent that an easy to use and low-cost solution was needed to assist smaller markets in competing for online ad dollars. Skyrocket Radio was born.
