STATE TOURNAMENT: Braham Beats BOLD [Audio Replay]
Girls High School basketball season is reaching it’s pinnicle this week as the State Tournament began on Wednesday. While the Chisago Lakes Area Wildcats were eliminated by DeLasalle in the opening round in Class AAA, one other team from our listening area advanced. The Braham Bombers girls took down BOLD 79-42 at Target Center keeping their undefeated season in tact and their hopes for a champship alive. The Bombers outscored Bird Island Olivia Lake Lillian District 50-21 in the second half and watched star guard Rebekah Dahlman do something that no other girls player has ever done. Last night Dahlman’s 40-point performance put her over 5000 points for her high school career.
The Bombers don’t have much time to enjoy the opening round victory in Class AA as they’ve got the defending champion Providence Academy up next on Friday night. Bombers Coach Tim Malone told us that he understands a great challenge awaits these Bombers. Listen here to the replay of the game along with the postgame interview with Malone.
