Bucs earn No. 3 seed in Saturday’s DIAA dual-meet championships

MILFORD – With the official release of the seeding and first-round match-ups last night, the stage is set for this Saturday’s DIAA Division II Dual-Meet State championships at Smyrna High.

The Bucs, on their quest for a fifth consecutive Div. II state title, grabbed the No. 3 seed in the six-team tournament.

Laurel and Indian River, grabbing the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds in the tournament, dethroned the Bucs after four consecutive seasons as the top-seeded Division II squad.

First up for Milford? A quarterfinals showdown with the No. 6 seeded Woodbridge Blue Raiders, a school Milford just defeated 56-12 in the regular season finale Monday night. A quarterfinal win over the Blue Raiders would set the Bucs up with a rematch against either the Bulldogs or Indians in the semifinal round.

The two quarterfinal matches will begin at approximately 2 p.m.
