On the girls’ side, McPherson (14-5) plays Ulysses (6-13) at 7:30 p.m. next Thursday, March 6. Buhler (12-6) plays Abilene (8-10) in the 6 p.m. opener.

On Friday, McPherson High’s boys (17-1) play the 7:30 game and are the No. 1 seed. Abilene (12-6) will play at 6 p.m. and be the No. 2 seed.

Buhler (6-12) and Ulysses (6-13) are still battling it out for the final two spots. Buhler plays Tuesday at Mulvane in what is the deciding game and Thursday at home against Rose Hill. Ulysses finishes up at home Thursday against Colby.

The sub-state finals are on Saturday, March 8, with the girls at 6 p.m. and the boys 20 minutes after the completion of the girls’ game.
