Cairo Ladycats Ready To Compete in Show-Me Showdown

The Cairo Ladycats path to a state championship begins with the Delta Ladycats in the state semifinals at Mizzou Arena Wednesday night. Cairo took down undefeated Meadville 71-58 in the quarterfinals. Coach Brian Winkler says practice has been good for the Ladycats following the win.

29-1 Delta is ranked second in Class 1, making its second trip to the final four in three seasons. The Ladycats defeated state-ranked Walnut Grove 61-43 in the previous round. Winkler is impressed by the Delta guards.

The two programs meet for the second time, the first meeting coming in the 2008 title game where Cairo won 54-32. Winkler is excited for the opportunity to compete down in Columbia.

You can hear the Cairo versus Delta game on 104.7 KRES and with coverage beginning around 5:45. Steven Findley Jr and Austin Ward will have the call.
