Vikings open against Coloma

By By DAN WEISS / Niles Daily Star
NILES -- Jim Arnold has always said he would rather play a game in the first round of the district tournament than receive a bye.
The Niles coach got his wish this year as the Vikings (15-3) will take on Coloma (5-13) in the first game of the Class B District Tournament at Niles High School on Monday, Nov. 17, at 6 p.m.
The second game of Monday night will feature Dowagiac (4-14) against Berrien Springs (7-11) 20 minutes after the conclusion of the Niles-Coloma contest.
The tournament will resume Wednesday, Nov. 19, with two semifinal contests. St. Joseph (12-6) awaits the Niles-Coloma winner for the Wednesday's first game at 6 p.m. Lakeshore (8-10) will take on the Dowagiac-Berrien Springs winner in the second game of the night.
The championship game at Niles is set for Friday, Nov. 21, at 7 p.m.
Niles has won six straight district titles.
