The second season begins today for the Aledo Ladycats basketball team.
The Ladycats, the No. 1 seed from District 4-5A, face Amarillo Palo Duro, the No. 4 seed from District 3-5A in a girls’ Class 5A, Region I bi-district playoff game.
Tip off is at 6 p.m. today at Childress High School. The Ladycats have been designated as the visitors.
The Ladycats come into today’s game riding a three-game district winning streak, which included a tiebreaker win over Abilene Cooper and a coin flip that earned Aledo the district’s top seed.
Palo Dura brings a 10-15 record into the contest and needed a win in a 3-5A fourth-place tiebreaker contest to earn a playoff spot.
The winner of the game will advance to the area championship (second round) and face the winner of today’s El Paso Burges/El Paso El Dorado bi-district playoff game.
