Big Lake 7th Grade Boys Basketball team took 1st place

Submitted Article
The Big Lake 7th Grade Boys Basketball team took 1st place at the MYAS State Tournament the weekend of March 8 and 9. There were 197 7th grade teams competing in 13 different 16 team brackets. We were in 8A which was the fourth best group of 16 teams. This year's seniors, freshman and 7th grade teams at Big Lake have all won the MSF (Minnesota Sports Federation) state championship in when those teams were in the middle school. This is the first Big Lake team to win a state championship in the MYAS (Minnesota Youth Athletic Services). The team will be introduced at a Minnesota Timberwolves game in April. Thank you BLYBA (Big Lake Youth Basketball Association) for all your hard work with all the boys and girls teams at Big Lake.
