A school familiar with some Connersville fans will play for its fifth semistate championship in six seasons — with its sights set on a fourth state title.
Park Tudor (24-2) plays Linton-Stockton (22-6) in a 2A matchup at Southport (4 p.m.). The Panthers won the 2A regional at Spartan Bowl in 2010, 2011 and 2012 under coaches Ed Schilling and April (McDivitt) Schilling, both former players for Connersville, and last year under the direction of coach Kyle Cox. PT won the 2A championship last year, in 2011 and 2012. — kh
