The Linn County girls improved to 2-0, with the boys evening their record at 1-1, by virtue of victories on Monday night in the Northwestern Invitational Basketball Tournament in Mendon, Missouri.
The Lady Mustangs, seeded #4, took care of #5 seed Northwestern 45-35 to advance into the semifinal round, with the #5 seeded Linn County boys pulling off a mild upset, beating the #4 seed from Hale/Bosworth, 49-48. The wins likely mean semifinal games against the tournament's top seeds later this week for Linn County High School.
