The Millerettes, 17-15, will have to beat Lawton, 9-15 in the opening round to have a shot at the Lady Broncos later Tuesday in the winners bracket final. Mustang, 19-8, will play Northwest Classen, 1-20, in the opening round at noon.
YHS takes on Lawton, who finished fifth in District 6A-1 with a 9-15 record, a 5-9 district mark. The Lady Wolverines are an improved team from past seasons, but will have to play their best game to advance past the Millerettes.

The championship finals is set for 3 p.m. and the if necessary game (if the team with one loss in the championship finals wins that game) will be played at 5 p.m. The winner advances to state.
