For Polo, Maria Rains had 11 and Sidney Copeland nine points. Polo, in pool play, will take on South Harrison on Tuesday night, while Trenton will battle #2 seed South Harrison on Thursday afternoon at 4:30.

The Trenton boys survived a strong upset bid from #7 seed Polo, but survived by a final score of 68-56. Polo was down by only three points with 2:53 to play, but Trenton was able to get defensive stops, hit free throws, and salt the game away, moving to 11-7 on the season.

Polo's Jackson Pile had a strong night for the Panthers, with 25 points, while Drew Williams netted 14.

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.
