Harlan Girls Looking for Back-to-Back State Tourney Appearances


(Harlan) The undefeated and #1 ranked Harlan Cyclone girls basketball team is on the verge of a 2nd straight state tournament appearance. To return to state they'll need to beat 12-11 Boone in the Regional Final Tuesday tonight.


Harlan opened up the regional tournament on Saturday with a 44 win over Denison-Schleswig. The Cyclones got off to a good start leading 55-10 at halftime, coach Zach Klaassen says he was happy with what he saw in the first round.

The Cyclones have rarely been challenged this season, with an average margin of victory of 35.3 points per game. They did however have a close game with Class 2A #10 Panorama late in the regular season that coach Klaassen believes may ultimately be a benefit for the squad.
