Also on Tuesday, the Lady Buffs soccer team (9-6-1) will play host at 5 p.m. to Wichita North (6-10-0) in the South Central regional after receiving the No. 4 seed. A win would move them into the regional final on Thursday at 6 p.m. against the winner of the Wichita Heights-Dodge City game, also to be played on Tuesday. That regional final would be played on Thursday in Wichita.

On Wednesday, the GCHS Lady Buffs softball team (16-3) will host a South Central regional and are set to play Western Athletic Conference rival Dodge City (5-15) at 3:45 p.m. at the Tangeman Sports Complex.
