The Mercer girls open postseason play on Tuesday night, taking a 24-0 record to Green City to meet the Bucklin-Macon County Lady Bulldogs in a Class 1, District 12 semifinal. Dennis Stephenson will have the call on Hot Country Z 101.7 at 6 o’clock. Last week, Mercer survived an overtime scare from Gilman City, and blasted East Harrison on Friday night. A potential Mercer appearance in a district championship game would be Friday night. Here is the conversation with Sports Director Tom Johnson and Lady Cardinals Head Coach Dan Owens, originally aired on Monday, February 22, 2016.
The Mercer boys have a #1 seed for district play, with a third meeting against the Green City Gophers approaching on Wednesday night in the semifinals (at Green City). A Mercer win would set up another rematch, against either Novinger or Meadville, on Friday night. The Cardinals were impressive last week in downing Gilman City and East Harrison. Here is the interview with Cardinals Head Coach Jeff Wyatt, originally aired on KTTN-FM on Monday, February 22, 2016.
