While the high schools in, and around, Salina altered their mid-season tournament strategy a couple years ago and ran both boys and girls mid-season basketball tournaments the same week, the entire state has not followed that trend and this past week saw the girls’ tournament week take place and the Ark Valley Chisholm Trail League I had its fair share of entrants and success as Maize South girls basketball team won the El Dorado Invitational while Hutchinson and Derby placed third and fourth in their respective tournaments.
