Rob Hamilton: It was tough and these kids battled
all year and we had our ups and downs but when the
kids needed to come through, they really do.
Mike Brekke: and a couple of non-conference losses
which weren't very good, but now we're rolling at
a pretty good time- and we're excited to go into the
tournament like this.

We've been down in big games and stuff- and we always
push our way back - we're never out of it- we never
quit we always just keep pounding on.

I've been putting in a lot of work since the spring
break in March, and it's finally paying off.
Practice every day, on the Saturdays too.
It just feels good to have it pay off for once.
It's awesome for the kids with any group.
You can be young, or like we are, senior dominated,
it's always good to see those kids, and see the reward
for their hard work that they have put in for three,
four years of high school ball.
IT WAS A TERRIFIC DAY FOR THE BIG 8...THREE TEAMS
MADE IT TO STATE.
