I think everyone in Huron thought we would have 2 teams in the championship games of the AA and B State Boy's Basketball Tournaments...in fact, I kind of thought it was a given that both trophies were coming back to the 352. BUT that is why you play the games.
The Tigers got knocked off in the first round by the #8 seeded SF Lincoln Patriots...undoubtedly the hottest team in South Dakota right now...as Lincoln will play for the title tonight. The Vikings did make it to the title tilt tonight, and had a few struggles here and there to make it through their first 2 rounds. They deserve a shot at the trophy again this year after a ill-timed bout of food poisoning kind of took some of their MOJO last year.
This community is super proud of both of our teams and what they have accomplished this season....if they bring home the 1st place trophy or not, we are behind you.
Fans if you are with Orange Nation, Yellow and Black Nation or Red Nation (Huron All Stars) be proud of the year the teams had, and the life lessons our players learned.
Players hold on to these moments...they will be some of your fondest memories, and the brothers you have in the locker room will be your friends...basically...for life.
Long Live Sports.
