Basketball makes up the local Tuesday schedule as the Mountain Home High School girls will begin its season on the road. The Lady Bombers will head west to take on the Purple Dogs of Fayetteville.
Mountain Home is coming off a season in which they finished 19-13. The Lady Bombers finished the 2016 campaign at Lake Hamilton High School in Pearcy as they fell to the host team of the Class 6A State Tournament.
Mountain Home is facing the defending state champions from Class 7A, and head coach Dell Leonard says it's a good way to prepare for what they'll see later this season in district play.
Tip-off at Bulldog Arena is scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday's game can be heard on Classic Hits 101.7 and streaming live at ktlo.com.
