In a new twist this year, semistate sites have been chosen, however the IHSAA won’t announce which teams play at those sites until after the regional round has been completed.
This has been done to reduce drive times for the teams involved.

Lanesville’s tickets for the Borden Sectional are on sale from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the high school office.

Funeral changes LHS girls’ game site
Due to the two-day visitation and funeral for Katlyn Collman at the Crothersville gymnasium, Lanesville’s girls game this Saturday against the Lady Tigers has been changed to a home date.
The game begins at 1 p.m. and is a varsity-only contest.
Collman, 10, was abducted early last week from near the Crothersville school and her body was found Sunday.
