Kickapoo and S-C are polar opposites as far as playing experience. While Kickapoo (4-5) lost only one player from last year’s district championship squad, the Lady Tigers have relied on a group of freshmen led by Jessica Coble and Brianna Pollitt to start the season 4-1.

If the Lady Tigers win Friday, they would meet the Rockwood Summit-Rock Bridge winner at 9:45 a.m. Saturday at the KHS south field. If they lose, they would meet the loser of the game at 8 a.m. at the KHS turf field
The trophy games start at 1:15 p.m. Saturday with the seventh- and fifth-place games at Parkview High School and the KHS turf field, respectively. The third-place (KHS grass field) and championship (KHS turf field) are set for 3:30 p.m.
