Bears win Wednesday

Both the Blair boys and girls basketball teams were victorious Wednesday night, clinching their subdistrict tournament titles.
Coach Matt Aschoff's girls (17-6 overall) defeated South Sioux City 38-26 at home in the Class B Subdistrict 4 final, while coach Chris Whitwer's boys (14-9) won a 78-74 overtime game at Class B No. 4 Bennington in the B-5 Subdistrict finale.
The wins solidified the Bears' District Finals seeds. The girls are No. 9 and will play at No. 8 Sidney (19-7) for a chance to return to the state tournament for the first time since 1998.
The Blair boys, meanwhile, are the No. 10 seed and will travel to McCook (20-6) in hopes of returning to the Class B State Championship tournament for the second-consecutive year.
District final dates and times weren't made official as of late Wednesday night. Weekend games are expected, though they could also be scheduled for early next week. This online article will be updated with the information when it becomes available.
