(Annapolis, Mo.) The Class 1 District 3 girls basketball semifinals get underway this evening on J98 as #1 South Iron takes on #4 Lesterville and #2 Eminence squares off with #3 St. Paul Lutheran.
The first game of the night will see the 21-4 South Iron Panthers meeting the 15-10 Lesterville Bearcats for the fourth time this season.
The Panthers won the previous three meetings against the Bearcats, but South Iron head coach Lawrence Graves says you throw out records and previous games this time of year.
