GREENVILLE COMETS NAMED CONFERENCE CHAMPS AND #1 SEED
The Greenville Comets won the basketball conference championship Saturday night and next week begins regional play at Wood River. Coach Todd Cantrill told us he thinks they have a shot.
“Right now we’re the #1 seed in the regional,” Cantrill told WGEL. “We’re going to have to play a semi-final game on Tuesday night, and then see what happens with that one, and of course if we win, we play the championship game on that Friday night. We’re playing pretty well right now, so…if we continue to get better, I think we’ve got a great chance to win that regional then next week.”
TWO LADY COMETS MOVE FORWARD IN THREE-POINT CONTEST
Two Lady Comets recently advanced in IHSA Three Point Showdown in Vandalia. Both Kassidy Alderman and Afton Nelson will move forward to compete in the Casey sectionals 3-point contest this Thursday.
Greenville High School Athletic Director Joe Alstat told us he is proud of all the girls and their hard work this season.
“There were 20 shooters there and the top four advanced, and Kassidy made nine and Afton made eight out of 15, so they advanced to the sectional round,” Alstat told WGEL. “They just had a great season as a team, and I’m glad to see they’re able to get some accolades as well.”
