Milan, in addition to a tough slate of games in the Tri-Rivers Conference, has a daunting run of non-conference tests this season. Those tests start with a two-game homestand to kickoff the season, with Gallatin visiting Legion Field on Thursday, August 29th, and Marceline at Milan on Tuesday, September 3rd. The Lady 'Cats first road (and conference) game of the season will be at Schuyler County on Thursday, September 5th.
