There will be changes in the Chillicothe basketball post season. The MSHSAA basketball classifications have been released and Chillicothe will drop down to Class 3, District 14.
In addition to Chillicothe boys and girls, the district includes Brookfield, Carrollton and Higginsville. Lexington, Richmond, St Paul Lutheran and Trenton.
Higginsville is the host of the District Tournament. Several of the District teams are potential new opponents for the Hornets.
The change in classification is causing problems with the Hornets Class 4 schedule, made well before classification changes were released.
Class 3 basketball district tournaments are held a week earlier than Class 4. That means Chillicothe must reschedule doubleheaders with Marshall and Cameron.
Next Tuesday’s boys basketball game with Hamilton has been postponed due to Hamilton still playing post season football. The Girls game at last report will still be held on the 20th.
Previously publicized basketball schedules should be considered outdated at this time.
