SPRINGFIELD, Mo–Saturday afternoon, the Kickapoo Lady Chiefs will be shooting for their seventh girls basketball state championship.

Kickapoo coach Jim Pendergrass talked about the championship game before he knew his opponent.

“To me I don’t care.  I’m just glad the Kickapoo Lady Chiefs are getting ready to play one more game.  And its a championship game on Saturday.  We’ll prepare for them.  We had a great battle with Kirkwood in the championship game two years ago.  And whether it’s Liberty or Kirkwood it’ll be a great contest,” said Pendergrass.
