The Trenton boys survived a strong upset bid from #7 seed Polo, but survived by a final score of 68-56.

Morgan Prather had 13 points and Shelby Kruse 9 for the Lady Hornets. The Gallatin boys, up by 16 points at the end of three quarters, had to hold on by their fingernails late, with the Bulldogs escaping with a 62-61 win. The Hornets had a chance to tie the game late, but Penney hit a two-point shot at the buzzer after a pair of three-point shots had failed to go down. Chris Cameron led the Bulldogs with 25 points, with Jacob Boyd scoring 12. For Penney, Korby Ford had a game-high 26 points. Jaran Richman scored 19 and Telly Harper 11.
