Mount Vernon has experience in big games like these. California does not. Advantage, Mountaineers.
The Pintos (20-9) will try to overcome their inexperience as they face the Mountaineers (23-5) in a Class 3 state quarterfinal game at 1:45 p.m. today at the Hammons Student Center in Springfield.
"I'm not really worried about (the experience factor)," California coach Blair Scanlon said.
