“Poised” Spring Grove Lions not looking to waste any momentum or opportunities in section title game

(ABC 6 News) — The Spring Grove Lions ensured there will be a new Section 1A and Class A state champion when they convincingly defeated the Hayfield Vikings, 57-46, in the Section 1A semifinals.

For the #7-ranked team in Class A, it was the statement victory they needed. The team now will attempt to knock down the undisputed #1 team in Goodhue (#1 in Class A rankings, #1 in Section 1A tournament) to capture the Section 1A championship.

The Lions are a team built with many of the same players who played for the 9-man football championship, and basketball head coach Wade Grinde believes that plays in their favor. The game will take place on March 16 at 6 pm at the Mayo Civic Center.
