The Monticello Sages won five of their final six games of the regular season and hope to be peaking at the right time as they enter regional play tonight when they take on Warrensburg-Latham from Monticello Middle School in boys Class 2A regional semifinal action tonight.


The Sages most recent victory was a 55-26 win over Olympia Friday night. Perhaps the most convincing win in that stretch was a 51-32 win over Decatur St. Teresa when Monticello held the Bulldogs without a field goal in the first half.


The Cardinals enter action off a dominating 60-25 win over Argenta-Oreana in Monday regional quarterfinal action Monday.


Warrensburg-Latham enter play 18-13 overall while Monticello finished the regular season 20-7. This season marks the fifth 20-win season in the last seven years under Kevin Roy for the Sages. 


Game time tonight is 7 pm. Hear the action on 95.9 FM WEZC and online at dewittdailynews.com.
