Lady Chicks' season on the line every game now

— It's already been a special season for the Chickasha High School girls basketball team.

The Lady Chicks earned a double-digit win total in the regular season, capping it off with an upset of No. 1 Shawnee on Chickasha's senior night.

Then, the Chickasha girls beat Guthrie in the first round of regionals to send them to area.

That's where the Lady Chicks stand now, facing a matchup with the Thomas Edison girls in Bixby tonight at 8 p.m.

Chickasha lost in the regional championship game, 68-63 to Tahlequah on Saturday, so it's win or go home for the team from here on out.

Thomas Edison is the No. 6 team in class 5A, with a record of 17-7.

If Chickasha beats Thomas Edison, it will play the loser between East Central and Collinsville at 3 p.m. Saturday in Sapulpa.

The Lady Chicks need to win their next two games to qualify for the state tournament.
