Nothing lasts forever. That's the truth in life and sports, and in the first round of the District 9C girls basketball tournament, a dominant run came to an end at the hands of an exciting up-and-comer.
Thursday afternoon in the Havre High gymnasium, the Hays-Lodge Pole girls not only catapulted themselves to within one win of a Northern C berth, but they also ended Box Elder's run of 9C championship games with a 64-61 win in a 9C girls thriller.
"It feels really good," HLP's Mulleah Stiffarm said. "We played together, we worked as a team to achieve this today and we achieved it."
