Festus Faces Toughest Test Yet In District Finals At West Plains

The Festus Tigers will look to extend their season into next week as they travel to play the West Plains Zizzers in the Class 4, District 1 championship game.

Festus enters the contest with a record of 7-4, much improved from their 4-6 output last year that ended in a first round district loss. Head coach Russ Schmidt has made it a priority to change the culture this season.

Festus comes into the matchup with the Zizzers on a high, as their upset victory over Farmington last week was one of the best performances of the season, per Schmidt.

West Plains enters the high stakes affair with a spotless record of 11-0, having not given up a single point so far in district play while scoring 104 points combined in the two games. Schmidt knows it will not be easy.
