We’ve got the teams. We don’t have all the matchups.
Here’s what we do know:
The event is set for Jan. 24, 2009, at the U.S. Cellular Center.
Two of the matchups will consist of likely preseason #1 teams — MFL MarMac (2A) and Springville (1A) will play each other; so will Ballard (3A) and Linn-Mar (4A). Springville is the defending 1A champion.
Cedar Rapids Kennedy will play defending 2A state champ Davenport Assumption. The Cougars were looking for a 21st game. This will fit the bill nicely.
Tri-Rivers rivals Maquoketa Valley and North Linn are likely opponents.
The other two games will consist of four Wamac Conference teams — Marion, Vinton-Shellsburg, Mount Vernon and DeWitt Central. The matchups haven’t been determined, though Marion-Central and Vinton-Mount Vernon is the most likely scenario. All four of these teams are potential top-15 teams in 3A.
