Bowling Green is playing in the Class AAA Championship.
The Lady Bucs split two games on Saturday in the Class AAA Tournament at the Magee Sportsplex in Mississippi and then needed to go undefeated at 3-0 on Monday to advance to the finals.
They did just that, and are now playing for the title.
“That was ultimately our goal for the season was to make it to the final two and the best two out of three series and then see what happens when we get there,” Bowling Green School coach David Hood Burris said. “That was one of our goals. We’ve got a shot with Clinton Christian. We’re 1-1 against them. We’ve got a good challenge on our hands. They’ve got five players committed to play in college.”
Bowling Green faces Clinton Christian Academy in a best-of-three beginning Wednesday, Oct. 2.
Game one takes place on Oct. 2 at Bowling Green School. Game two, and if necessary, game three, will be held on Saturday, Oct. 5, at Hinds Community College at 5 p.m., and, if needed, game three will follow.
