MINNEAPOLIS – The HVL Conference will be well represented at the State Girls Basketball Tournament. Goodhue will play in Class A, Kenyon-Wanamingo will play in Class AA and Kasson-Mantorville will play in Class AAA.

Goodhue, ranked first in Class A, and Kenyon-Wanamingo, ranked second in Class AA have been in the polls all season, but Kasson-Mantorville (25-5) enters the state tournament unranked.

KM has placed second in the Section 1AAA finals the past two years. They defeated Winona on Friday, 67-55, to earn their first state basketball appearance since 1997.

The KoMets, unseeded in the Class AAA tournament, got a tough draw to open tournament play. KM will take on second-seeded Fergus Falls (28-1) on Wednesday at 10 a.m. at Mariucci Arena at the University of Minnesota.  The Otters were the top-ranked Class AAA team in the last poll. Park Center (23-5) earned the top seed. The Pirates were ranked sixth in the last Class AAA poll.
