McLouth girls get No. 4 seed, home game
No. 8 MHS boys go to KCC
The McLouth High girls basketball team is getting one more home game this year.
As the No. 4 seed in the Class 3A Horton sub-state tournament, the Bulldogs (12-7) will play host to a first-round postseason game against No. 5 Atchison County (12-5).
A win in the 7 p.m. Tuesday home playoff game would put McLouth in a sub-state semifinal on Friday at Horton.
The MHS boys, however, will have a much tougher draw as the No. 8 seed in their bracket.
McLouth will open the postseason on the road Monday, when it travels to No. 1 Kansas City Christian (13-5) for a 7 p.m. tip.
Earlier this month, on Feb. 12, MHS played host to K.C. Christian and lost, 61-38.
Should McLouth pull off the upset, it would go on to a sub-state semifinal game in Horton on Thursday.
