The second round was not kind to the Bearcats — either of the Bearcats, to be exact.
The Varsity boys and girls teams feel out of post-season play this week in the second round of the Class 3 District 9 Tournament, hosted by Blair Oaks High School.
The Lady Bearcats fell hard in their contest Wednesday night with the St. James Lady Tigers, 57-31, as the top Hermann scorers were literally shut out by the 26-0 Tigers.
On Thursday night, the Bearcats enjoyed a narrow lead over Blair Oaks for much of the game, only to see a 21-point surge by host Blair Oaks in the 4th quarter to claim the 63-52 victory and the right to move on toward the District title.
