Monday’s a big day for Iola High School, when all spring sports open practice.
Iola High’s Fillies and Mustangs open Kansas Class 4A substate basketball play.
The two IHS teams had similar seasons, which netted each one the No. 6 seed in the tournament. That put them both up against No. 3 seeded teams, which both turned out to be from Independence.
Iola travels to Independence for a substate doubleheader.

TODAY is also a big BLUE LETTER DAY for Iola High. Iola will be represented in its first-ever Kansas Class 4A State Wrestling Tournment.
Juniors Marcus Sullivan and Chris Lynn wrestle today at the Bicentenial Center in Salina. The first round of action began at 10 o’clock this morning with matches throughout the day.
If the two Mustangs can get one win today, they will be back in action Saturday. The tournament is a two-day affair.
It is significant to Iola High that the wrestling program landed two competitors at the state tournament only in its second year of competition. The Mustangs wrestled mainly junior varsity matches a year ago. They had a full varsity season this year.

COLD WET WEATHER prevented Allen County Community College’s Red Devils from opening the softball season earlier this week. The Red Devils had games slated
for Tuesday and Thursday but the ACCC softball field was too wet to play on.
Allen County has a doubleheader schedule with Iowa Central on Saturday afternoon.
