The Lady Mustangs got a 1-1 split taking a win over Ness City but falling to Otis-Bison Cougars.

It was another one of those long trips as the 15-11 Macksville Lady Stangs traveled to Ness city to take on the 2A Ness City Eagles in league play.

Playing better than they did in last week’s meet at Kinsley, the Stangs first defeated Ness in the first match 25-18, 27-25, then lost one against the Otis-Bison Cougars 25-18 , 25-12, giving the Lady Stangs a one win, one lose record.

With another long road trip, this time to Victoria against the Knights and the La Crosse Leopards this Tuesday (results not available at press time), and the CPL Tournament held at Kinsley on Saturday, the Lady Stangs will have little time to prepare with the upcoming 1A regional coming the following Tuesday at 2 p.m. in Spearville.

There will be seven teams entered, along with one bye. They are the Bucklin Red Aces, Hodgeman County Long Horns (Jetmore), Kinsley Coyotes, Minneola Wildcats, Pawnee Heights Tigers, Spearville Lancers, and the Macksville Stangs.

The top two teams advance on to Substate held at Greensburg on Saturday, October 20th.
