JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (WTXL) - High school basketball teams look to punch their ticket to Lakeland and the State Final Four.

The Rickards Lady Raiders took on a tough Ribault team in the 6A Region One Championship game, a team that has been to five straight Final Fours, winning three State titles.

Rickards led after the first quarter, but Ribault turned it on in the second half, winning 73 to 61 to end the Lady Raiders season.

In Class 8A, the Lincoln ladies reached the Elite Eight for the first time in school history, but fell short Friday of making it to the Final Four. The Lady Trojans lost 63-53 to Fleming Island, ending their season.
