Bolivar gets a nice advantage as the No. 1 seed, as there’s a clear drop-off after No. 2 seed Pleasant Hill and No. 3 seed Harrisonville. Pleasant Hill-Harrisonville will likely meet in the semifinals, with the winner advancing to face Bolivar.
Harrisonville has caused Bolivar problems in the past, but the Liberators beat them 31-14 on the road in the regular season. Pleasant Hill is undefeated and state-ranked.If the Liberators can get out of districts, that Webb City-Bolivar state title game matchup isn’t far-fetched.
