MHS boys to be top seed in 2A substate at Valley Heights
February 20, 2019
The Bulldogs have a shot at tying Maur Hill-Mount Academy for the NEKL title, but MHS would have to win out and have another NEKL team also knock off the Ravens in the final week. More importantly, the Bulldogs will be the top seed in the Class 2A Valley Heights Substate. If McLouth were to stumble this week, the Bulldogs still would be the top seed, as Valley Heights is the No. 2 seed at 12-9. MHS likely will open the substate with a home game against Atchison County (0-19).
