Lady Bulldogs Enter Region 3A Tournament as Seven Seed: Game Preview – Madison vs Garretson

The Madison Lady Bulldogs (3-17 overall, 1-5 Region 3A) will see Region 3A Tournament action tonight when they head to Garretson to take on the Lady Blue Dragons.


The Lady Blue Dragons (12-8 overall, 3-2 Region 3A) come in as the No. 2 seed and Madison is the No. 7 seed. This Garretson team has a winning record on the year, but let a lot of teams play them close. This bodes well for Madison who has been increasingly feisty as of late and not going down without a fight every night.

The head coach is Matt Schrank in his third season. He has a 39-26 overall record, going 9-6 in Region 3A.
