Irish, Eagles, Sailors Gunning For Girls State Berths Tonight

Tickets to state will be punched for girls basketball teams in the C and D classes tonight, and three Lincoln County teams are hoping they can earn their way to the big dance. In the C2-6 district championship, St. Patrick’s is looking for their second straight trip to state. They take on Bridgeport in Chappell. ESPN Radio 1410 will have the action, with pregame coverage at 7:15 and the tipoff at 7:30. The Sutherland Lady Sailors are hoping to make a second state trip in three years. They take on Crawford in the D1-6 district final in Bayard. And the Brady Lady Eagles are trying to get to Lincoln for the third time in the last four years. They face Wauneta-Palisade in the D2-5 final in Wallace. A best case scenario has four Lincoln County teams heading to state. Hershey must hope for a Wild Card entry into the Class C2 field.
