Athletic Directors, please make sure that your MaxPreps schedules are updated with scores. Having an accurate schedule on MaxPreps is vital to the seeding and selection process. Although we are still a few months away from seeding & selection for State Basketball we need to be in the habit of posting scores immediately following each contest. For help with MaxPreps, please contact Tyler Dunkel at
