Both of Chillicothe High School’s Varsity Basketball teams are in competition this evening in the Savannah Tournament.
The Hornets will open their season tonight at 5:30 against Platte County in an opening round game. Chillicothe graduated three seniors from last year’s team that finished with a 15-10 record. Platte County finished 20 – 6 last year with five seniors on the squad. This is the first game of the season for both teams.
The Chillicothe Lady Hornets will face Maryville at 7:00 tonight. The Lady Hornets opened the season last week with a lopsided win over Hamilton.
Maryville finished 22 and 2 last season.
Chillicothe Coach Darren Smith says despite the graduation of their best player last season, the Lady Spoofhounds still have some weapons.
This will be the first game of the season for Maryville.
