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.
Bulldogs 26-0 Entering Next Week’s Class C-1 State Basketball Tourney After Sub-District, District Wins
Auburn’s boys basketball team finished the 2019-20 regular season with a perfect 23-0 record. The Bulldogs have held the #1 rating in Class C-1 all year. They also claimed the Wayne Holiday Tournament championship and the East Central Nebraska Conference Tourney title. While the regular season met expectations after a 2018-19 state championship team returned four starters, the Bulldogs are locked in on the 2020 postseason. In order to make the eight team state tournament, Auburn would have to win the C1-1 subdistrict with two wins, as well as another victory in the district championship.
The Auburn High School (AHS) Bulldog cheerleading team’s success continues.
