The Western Conference Tournament brackets were released on Thursday, as the countdown to the start of the season on December 3rd continues, and there are noticeable changes. There are only six teams participating in this year’s tournament on each of the boys and girls side.
Defending girls tournament champion Chadron will open against Mitchell at 4:00 pm at Scottsbluff High School.
With the way the bracket is set up, Chadron and Mitchell will both advance to the semifinals, but Saturday’s match ups will be determined by Friday’s outcomes.
The Chadron boys will square off with Scottsbluff, also at 4:00 pm, at Gering High School.
A win and the Cardinals will either play Gering or Mitchell in the semifinals while a loss pits them against Sidney or Alliance in the consolation bracket.
Due to a schedule conflict with the Parade of Lights on the same day, we will be broadcasting the boys game only.
