Braves Win Big In 1B

The seventh-seeded Britton-Hecla’s boys basketball team took care of business with a 60-36 victory over 10th-seeded Great Plains Lutheran in first round play of the Region 1B tournament in Webster on Monday to put itself into a rather unique position.

Despite being the seventh seed, the Braves defeated second-seeded Leola-Frederick by eight during the season, and downed third-seeded Warner by 10. Coach Casey Erickson’s crew traveled to Leola-Frederick last night Tuesday, but results were not available at press time. Quarterfinal winners will advance to semifinal play at the Aberdeen Civic Arena on Friday with games at 6 and 7:30 p.m. with those winners advancing to the SoDak 16 games on Tuesday.

Monday’s opener was the tale of two quarters for the Braves.
