The Camden Hills, Medomak Valley and Vinalhaven boys and girls are all tournament bound, as are the Rockland and Georges Valley boys, but other Midcoast high school basketball squads, such as the North Haven and Georges Valley girls, fell short in their bids to qualify for the postseason.

That is the news as the final Maine Principals’ Association Heal Points have been released.

The preliminary round of the playoffs will be Tuesday, Feb. 9 for girls and Wednesday, Feb. 10 for boys. The official regional playoffs at the tournament sites in Bangor and Augusta will begin over the weekend, Feb. 12-13.

This is the first time in years the MPA opted to have only the top 50 percent of the teams in a region qualify for postseason play. In recent years, the playoff qualifiers were two-thirds of the teams in a region.

The Eastern Class B tournament, which includes the Windjammers, Tigers and Panthers, will be held at the Bangor Auditorium, while the Western Class C and D tournaments, which include Georges Valley and Vinalhaven, will be held at the Augusta Civic Center.

The following are the final Heal Points and playoff pairings for local Knox and Lincoln county teams:
