Both North Mercer Lady Cardinals and Meadville Eagles will play for third place honors tonight in the class one high school basketball tournament at Columbia. That is the result of losses both teams suffered last night in semifinal action.


Chamois used good shooting and rebounding to pull away from North Mercer in the second half of the girls game — winning 62 to 39.

Chamois used a nine point run at the end of the first half to carry a 34 to 30 lead into the locker room. Chamois out-scored North Mercer 28 to 9 in the 2nd half.

North Mercer also was plagued with foul trouble as Sierra Michaelis (muh-Kay-lihs) and Courtney Owens both fouled out in the 4th quarter.
Michaelis led the lady Cardinals with 27 points.

Chamois had Miranda Brandt with 23 points and three others were in double figures. The other girls semi final saw Walnut Grove roll past Chadwick 66 to 42. That sets up the 3rd place game in class one tonight with a North Mercer taking on Chadwick at 8:20. North Mercer has 28 wins and 2 losses.

The Meadville boys basketball team rallied late in their semi final basketball game last night; had the game tied, but in the end, Stanberry pulled out a 51 to 47 victory. Leading scorers for Meadville Eagles were Derek Smith with 18 and Cade Shifflett with 12. Stanberry had four score in double figures: Jacob Heddinger 11, Cole Gage, Nathan Luke, and Ryan Jenson each had 10 points.

Meadville with 29 wins and only two losses will play tonight for third place vs Drexel with a 6:40 start time. Drexel lost a nail biter type of game to Eminence 65 to 64.
