Girls try for high five tonight
Morton is seeking its fifth consecutive girls basketball regional championship tonight.
The Potters face rival Metamora at 7:30 p.m. in the Class 3A Washington Regional final.
No. 1 seed Morton (21-9) defeated Limestone Tuesday, 50-40. The third-seeded Redbirds (18-11) got to this point by downing Pontiac Monday, 65-44, and Washington Tuesday, 65-51.
The Potters beat Metamora for the regional title in 2007 before finishing fourth in the last two-class state final.
Morton has won eight of the last nine meetings against the Redbirds.
