*** End Of Season Playoffs Schedule Is Posted ***

Posted by Jay Hertzler on May 06 2021 at 05:29AM PDT

Hello Lady Titan LAX Family,

As we come to the close of our 2021 regular season, I wanted to let everyone know that the end of season playoff schedule has been posted. Sadly, our JV team did not qualify to participate, but our Varsity team will go into the playoffs next week as the #1 seed in the metro. Here’s the breakdown of the playoffs. All games will be played at the Shawnee Mission home field at Westridge Middle School (9300 Neiman Rd, OPK)

Our league is split into 2 divisions, East and West. The East division is the top division made up of the top 6 Varsity teams in the metro, with the West Division being the remaining 6 teams. At the end of the regular season, the 6th place team in the East will be relegated to play in the West division next season, and the top team in the West will get promoted to play in the East. This season, it looks like St. James Academy will be promoted up, and LS North will be relegated. This will be fully determined by the end of this week when all of the regular season games are completed.

For the playoffs, all 6 teams in the East will play (Seeds 1-6), plus the top 2 of the West (Seeds 7 & 8). For Day 1 of the playoffs on Monday, here’s the breakdown of the quarterfinal games:

1 v 8 (#2 team from West Div)
2 v 7 (#1 team from West Div)
3 v 6
4 v 5

Our quarterfinal game on Monday looks to be against Park or St Thomas Aquinas at 6pm.

Should we win, we will play our Semifinal game at 8pm on Wednesday against the winner of the #4 v #5 game. Right now, that looks to be a game between St. Teresa’s Academy vs Shawnee Mission.

Should we win the Semifinal game, we will play the Championship game on Thursday night at 8pm against the winner of the other side of the bracket (2v7, 4v5)…which everyone believes that Blue Valley will be the team we face.

So, to recap, next week will be 6pm Monday, 8pm Wednesday and 8pm Thursday…but we have to keep winning to move on.

As for spectators, there has been no communication to me on any restrictions on number of people, so I would like to personally invite all of you to come watch the games. Just practice good COVID measures like wearing a mask while in the stands.

Hope that helps…please let me know if you have any questions.

Let’s win this thing!
