To arrive at postseason play, Latta High School (23-3) won South Carolina's Region 8A. Elloree, on the other hand, struggled to a fourth place finish in Region 5A, losing a play-in game against Lamar to face the dubious honor of meeting the powerhouse Vikings.
Felton suffered a sprained ankle in the last game of the season but is now healthy and ready to compete.
The winner of Friday night's matchup will face the winner of Johnsonville (SC)/Baptist Hill (SC) game in a second round contest on February 26 at 7:00 p.m., also to be held at Latta High School.

The Felton Watch: Felton's 734 total points this season have brought him to a career total of 2,679 points. He is now within 17 points of breaking the all-time South Carolina career points record of 2,695, set by Hartsville's (SC) Roderick Blakeney from 1990 - 1994.
Raymond will almost certainly break the record on Friday night in Latta's first playoff contest and this is sure to please the appreciative Latta High School fans.
