Blackwell girls to get big test today

Ron Howell
Sports Editor

Blackwell, in the regional semifinals for the second time ever, faces a Hermleigh team at 8:30 tonight that is used to playing in Abilene this time of year. The Lady Cardinals, in fact, have won the Region II-1A title the last two years at Abilene Christian University.
If Blackwell breaks that trend, however, it will then face Aspermont or Veribest at the same location Saturday for a shot at something a Blackwell girls team has never won: a regional title and trip to the Class 1A state tournament in San Antonio the following week.
