You have to do something about this weather, but what are your options? For Lakeville North High School, you go south to the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Kissimmee, Fla. With 80-degree temperatures, they work out – and this is a team that understands it is all about work.
The winter sports season is over, and the spring sports season is in a fight with Mother Nature.
Apple Valley’s Tyus Jones and Lakeville North’s J.P. Macura are the co-winners of the 2014 Minnesota Associated Press Player of the Year award for boys basketball.
J.P. Macura went out a winner with Lakeville North. Macura scored 43 points and Connor Flack’s bank shot in the lane gave the Panthers the lead for good with 18 seconds left in an 84-82 victory over Hopkins in the Class 4A boys state championship game Saturday night, the program’s first title. “I wanted to leave everything out on the floor,” said Macura, who will play at Xavier University next season.
High school basketball fans witnessed March Madness at Target Center Thursday night as a pair of state tournament semifinal games ended with buzzer-beating shots that went in. Hopkins and Lakeville North will meet for the Class 4A state championship Saturday night, but both teams needed shots to go in as time expired to get there.
Early in the third period of Saturday night’s Class 2A championship game at the Xcel Energy Center, the Edina student section started chanting, “This is our house.” That’ll hold true for at least another year.
Last year, the Lakeville North boys hockey team advanced to the state tournament, only to lose in convincing fashion to Edina in the first round. This year, they got over the hump with an overtime win over Roseau in round one. And a big part of this year’s success is coming from senior forward Tristen Hazlett – this week’s Aspire Athlete of the Week.
When the puck drops Wednesday morning at Xcel Energy Center, it’ll mark one of the most exciting and entertaining weeks of state tournament action. Between two classes, 16 of the top boys high school hockey teams in Minnesota will converge on St. Paul this week.
It’s hard to believe, but it’s already winter state tournament season in Minnesota high school sports. Just last week, state champions were crowned at the State Dance Competition at Target Center as well as the State Alpine and Nordic Ski Championships at Giant’s Ridge in Biwabik, Minn.
It’s a big time for high school sports all across the state as we close January. Regular seasons are coming to the back stretch in basketball, hockey and wrestling, which means the postseason is just around the corner. Conference races are taking shape, and every game seems to mean more as teams push for their league titles and home playoff games.
