For seven Brevard County high school girls basketball teams, Friday’s and Saturday’s district championship games will determine which play regional quarterfinal games on the road Thursday and which play at home.

Merritt Island’s girls soccer team gets a home game to decide a spot in next Friday’s state semifinal round. Melbourne has to get past Mitchell on its home field in New Port Richey. Either the Bulldogs or Viera have won the last four 4A titles.
