Defending Mid-Winter Classic champion St. John (9-0) drew the top seed, but innovative scheduling gives the unbeaten Tigers three games next week. St. John will open against the Pratt-Macksville loser at 4:45 p.m. But the Tigers will still play in Friday's second semifinal game at 8:15 p.m. against the Pratt-Macksville winner, which is scheduled Tuesday. The other bracket matches Ness City against Nickerson and Larned versus winless Wichita West (0-8) in Thursday's games.
STAFFORD - Hoisington High, ranked third in Class 3A, swept the Stafford High dual competition with a 4-0 record to stay unbeaten in dual matches. Hoisington defeated Bluestem, 70-7; Chaparral 65-6; Lincoln 76-6 and Nickerson 74-3.
