Chase County is seeded No. 6 in next week’s six-team SPVA Conference girls’ basketball tournament in North Platte.
That’s despite the fact the Lady Longhorns have beaten 2 of the teams seeded ahead of them.
Seeding is based on NSAA power points for games played through Saturday, Jan. 8, and Chase County was just three-tenths of a point behind No. 5 seed Perkins County.
Chase County’s No. 6 seed will pit them against No. 3 seeded Hershey in the first game of the tournament on Tuesday, Jan. 18, at North Platte Community College.
Hershey had a 7-3 record when teams were seeded early this week.
Despite the outcome of Tuesday’s first round game, all teams will have a minimum of 2 games in the tournament.
A win Tuesday for Chase County will send them to a game next Friday, Jan. 21, against top-seeded Sutherland. A loss will put them in the consolation game for 5th/6th place early Saturday, Jan. 22.
Sutherland earned the top seed with an 8-2 record, while North Platte St. Pat’s, at 8-3, is No. 2.
The boys’ SPVA tournament runs concurrently with the girls in North Platte next week.
