The District 4AAA basketball tournament is officially over.

Maryville athletics director George Quarles confirmed the girls’ and boys’ consolation and championship will not be played on Sunday.

With the final four in each field wiped out by inclement weather this week, District 4AAA seedings for next week’s Region 2AAA are set.

In the girls’ field, Bearden and Farragut were scheduled to meet in the 4AAA championship game. The regular-season champion Lady Bulldogs are now 4AAA’s No. 1 seed for the region tournament, the Lady Admirals the 2 seed.

Maryville was the higher seed in a scheduled girls’ consolation game with William Blount. The Lady Rebels are 4AAA’s No. 3 seed for the region tournament, the Lady Governors the No. 4.

In the boys’ field, Bearden gets the No. 1 seed over scheduled championship game opponent Heritage, the district’s 2 seed. Maryville’s Rebels are the No. 3 seed out of 4AAA, with Lenoir City in the 4 spot.
