Johnson-Brock Boys Get the Better of Mead on Way to Class D-2 State Basketball Tourney
A familiar foe was all that stood in the way for the Johnson-Brock Boys Basketball Team to travel to Lincoln for the 2020 State High School Championships. The 17-8 Eagles met 9-10 Mead twice in the past week before drawing the Raiders in the D2-7 District finals. The third meeting in 11 days turned out great if you are an Eagles fan as Johnson-Brock edged the Raiders 31-30 on Monday night.
District Finals March 2
Mead was all that stood between the Eagles and their trip to Lincoln in a week. Johnson-Brock proved that it was possible to beat the same team three times in a season, actually in three of their last four appearances on the court. The thought was that Weeping Water had proven to be a good place for the Eagles to play the Raiders the week before and that success continued with the District finals.
In Monday night’s game, senior Ty Hahn made five 3-pointers on his way to 25 points for the Class D-2 No. 5 Eagles who improved to 18-8 with the win. Sophomore Caleb Fossenbarger added five points for Johnson-Brock and senior Kolt Davis made a free throw.
