CMS Conferences Drop Ticket Prices To Tournament Finals

Planning on going to Friday's CMS conference basketball tournament championship games?

You're going to pay a little less for admission.

The ME-CA 7, Queen City and Southwestern 4A conferences have jointly decided to discount ticket prices to Friday's finals from $7 to $5.

The doubleheader championships begin at 6:30 p.m. for the girls with the boys to follow. The Queen City finals are at Waddell; the ME-CA at Hopewell; and the Southwestern at Butler.

"We want to be sensitive to the economy," Southwestern 4A Conference President Terri Cockerham said, "and give our loyal fans a chance to attend the championship finals at a more manageable price. Many of our families face difficult times and all three conferences wanted to do something to assist our fan base and their families".
