Columnist Doesn't See DHS Teams Going Far In CRC
Tonight, the Dorchester High School boys basketball (5-7) and girls basketball (1-12) teams will go on the road to take on Class C-2 Shelby (7-7).
Then things get really serious.
Tomorrow (Saturday), both the DHS boys and girls teams will begin in action in York at the Crossroads Conference Tournament, an annual event DHS has participated in since joining the CRC back in the 1991-92 school year, according to our records.
Our good friend Ken Kush, the sports reporter for the York News-Times, is out with his CRC Tournament predictions, which he issues every year.
Kush does not give the Longhorns very good odds for going far in the 2015 edition of the tourney.
Regarding the girls' action that begins tomorrow night, Kush writes: "The opening game of the tournament can always be the toughest since it’s a No. 8 vs. No.9 seed. Cross County (No. 9) has been inconsistent this season and it’s tough to go with a team who still seems to be searching for an identity. Shelby-RC to win over CC by about 7-10 points. High Plains will knock out McCool Junction in a No. 6 vs. No. 11 matchup and Osceola at No. 7 (a darkhorse) will take down No. 10 Dorchester."
The York columnist says the Hampton Hawks will win the CRC Tourney in the girls division.
Kush gives the DHS boys a little better odds. He expects the No. 6 seeded Longhorns to defeat No. 11 Meridian on Saturday.
But he writes that come Tuesday, the DHS boys will fall to the No. 3-seeded Exeter-Milligan Timberwolves.
Kush predicts High Plains (formerly Polk-Hordville) High Schol will take the CRC crown in the boys division.
If you travel to York to watch the action, be sure to cheer loudly for DHS.
