By Chris Geinosky

Smithville will play in the state semifinals for the third straight year and fourth time in the last five years.

“It’s a blessing,” Smithville head coach Jason Ambroson told SBLive before practice the day before Thanksgiving. “We definitely appreciate how lucky we are to still be practicing together at this time of year. We look forward to doing our best this weekend.”

Smithville’s next game will be one of the most famous semifinal games in state history. The Warriors take on St. Mary’s in a Class 4 Final Four game with two reigning state champions.
