We never get tired of perfection.
It’s a wonderful feeling.
We went 5-0 in our picks last week to improve to 49-6 overall.
And now, the prep playoffs begin with two local teams still alive.
Unfortunately, there will likely be only one team still alive after today.
Miami East (7-3) at Mechanicsburg (10-0) – The Indians put together the outstanding regular season we expected, but can they win a state title?
Their quest begins tonight against Miami East, and we doubt it will be much of a battle.
We’re going with Mechanicsburg to prevail.
WL-S (6-4) at Marion Local (9-1) – The Tigers have been one of the hottest Division VI teams in the state over the last month after starting the season 2-4.
It’s just too bad WL-S had to draw Marion Local in the first round.
We’re picking Marion Local to win.
Urbana U. (3-6) at Notre Dame College (7-2) – Despite their record, the Blue Knights have been playing pretty well for the last month or so.
UU could easily be 5-4 instead of 3-6 with a break here or there.
Notre Dame is a tough customer, though, so we’re going with it to prevail.
