Lancers boys, girls head into substate hoops action

Coach Scott Stein and the Lancers girls open substate play Thursday.

The Lancers girls will be hoping to extend their solid season as substate basketball play begins this week, while coach Shawn Hair and the boys team will be looking for a bit of redemption after a dismal regular season.

The boys open up their substate effort at 7 p.m. tonight at 15-5 Blue Valley North. With a record of 6-14, they’re next to last in the Sunflower League, besting only 5-15 SM North.

The girls get to start their post season bid at home Thursday against Blue Valley Northwest. At 12-8, they have the fifth best record in the league heading into substate.
