 It was so exciting to be in Lincoln this past weekend for the Nebraska State Girls Basketball Tournament to support our Lady Cardinals. Even though we had 450 miles to travel, we had a good showing of fan support from our student body. Friday at the Devaney Center, our students dressed in hunting clothes, many sporting mustaches in support of Coach Holmquist's trademark 'stache. This is what high school sports should be ... fun and supportive! I received several compliments from the State Basketball staff on how well our students supported the team. Our student body was much smaller due to the further distances Chadron travels to the tournament, but they were every bit as loud. Congratulations to the Lady Cards and their record setting season, and congrats to our student body to the support and sportsmanship they portrayed all year.
