12:30 p.m. – Couple places you can get your info on this game:
Follow me here on the blog or on Twitter (@joannachadwick) or on varsitykansas.com. Also, KGSO, 1410-AM is broadcasting the game.
Not sure why 5A is on TV and not 3A or 6A, but at least we’ve got you covered if you’re not here. Enjoy!
We are 57 minutes from the start of the Class 6A title game. Both teams have their offenses on the field, and Heights’ defense just came on the field.
My drive up was interesting: as I left town, I heard that the Heights football team was delayed when a charter bus blew tires. The starters went up in the spare bus, and then the rest of the team followed. We passed a bus on the way here.
I’m looking forward to seeing this game, and I’m hoping for a close one. I think that Heights’ defense is up to the challenge against Olathe North, especially the way it has been playing. The offense is doing well, too, and it will have a tough time against a very big, physical Olathe North team.
All around, should be a good one. I’ll be updating here and Twitter — @joannachadwick — so check it out.
