La Plata girls coach Nathan Simler says that depth will come in handy with a busy week of games ahead.

They come into the contest with a 12-9 record despite the graduation of 3,000 point scorer Brooke Littrell. Green City girls coach Cody Moore says he is thrilled with the way the girls have performed this season.
In the boys matchup, La Plata will be looking to play spoiler on Green City’s pursuit of a Tri-County North Conference title. The Bulldogs are scheduled to play five games in five days this week. La Plata boys coach Greg Buescher says with the congested schedule they’re focusing largely on themselves.
Green City will look to bounceback following a 66-51 loss to Cairo on Saturday in the championship of the La Plata Tournament.
