"At this stage of the season we're just trying to get ready for districts," said Sikeston coach Brian James. "I've about decided on our best lineup for district play. We just have to keep getting better and try to eliminate some of the careless play that we still have from time-to-time. We've got to be more consistent, but I think we're getting better."
Sikeston will be back in action again today when they host Dexter at 4 p.m.
