The Mt. Pleasant girls’ basketball games in Solon on Jan. 2, have had a switch in game times, as well as the amount of games played.

The road games were originally scheduled as a tripleheader with the freshmen teams leading things off at 4:30 p.m.

The day has been switched from a tripleheader to a doubleheader. The games will still start at 4:30 p.m., but instead of a freshman game, it will be a freshman/sophomore game leading things off.

The junior varsity game will not be taking place, which moves the varsity contest up to 6 p.m.

The Panther girls will be looking for their first three-game winning streak since February of 2015.

Mt. Pleasant is coming off of two dominant wins. They doubled-up Davis County, 64-32, at home on Dec. 20, and crushed West Burlington, 60-23, two days later on the road.

The Panthers are 3-4 this season. They defeated Durant, 41-27, to start the year off but then went on a four-game losing streak against ranked teams.

After Monday’s game, the Panthers will attempt to pick up their first conference win in Washington on Friday, Jan. 6, at 7:45 p.m.
