Adair-Casey Girls Seek First State Berth Since 1992


(Manning) 8th ranked Adair-Casey (22-3) will take on 17-6 Kingsley-Pierson Monday night for a trip the the Class 1A girls state basketball tournament. The Bombers advanced to the regional finals by winning a close one over Exira-EHK, 55-51.

 

Bomber girls basketball coach Cory Bartz says he's been able to talk to a couple of coaches who have played Kingsley-Pierson and broke down a game film. He compares them somewhat to the Exira-EHK team that they just played on Friday, but says Kingsley-Pierson is a little bit more athletic and plays a faster pace.
