Pine City’s 5th Graders Win Mora Tournament (Audio)

Monday, January 24th, 2011 at 1:49 pm

Pine City’s 5th grade basketball team has had quite a year so far. The team has went a combined 9-1 during three tournaments, including bringing home the prized blue ribbon for first place at both the Mora Tournament (Sat. Jan. 22) and the Pine City Tournament (Sat. Jan. 8).

The team has played very well, much to the delight of head coach Jason Rademacher. Our News/Sports Director Jesse Logan visited with coach after the #1st place finish at Mora, and also heard from one of the team’s standout players: coach’s son Jake. Full audio interview below.
