Finals Set for the Tony Lenzini Tourney at Palmyra [updated]
On to the hardware round at the 76th Annual Tony Lenzini Basketball Tournament.
Pairings are set for the third round of games. The girls championship matches Palmyra
and Clark County. Those programs have accounted for 36 of the previous 75 titles including Kahoka's wins in 1964 and 1966. Palmyra matches up with Monroe City in the boy's championship. Those programs have also been frequent championship game participants. Palmyra has won their own tournament 17 times. However, the Panthers are looking for their first championship since 1999. Monroe City has nine titles at Palmyra with their most recent win in 2017. Winter weather and snow in the forecast may change the schedule and we'll revise it here as needed.
