I have learned in the past few months, that this group of ROCORI athletes can never be counted out.
Tomorrow morning (AM 1390, pregame at 9:50am, 10am tip-off) the ROCORI Spartans boys basketball team (18-11) takes on top seeded Minneapolis Washburn (27-2), in the state 3A quarter finals.
The ROCORI Spartans beat Hill-Murray on Saturday, in a very exciting and entertaining football game, 37-35, to advance to the state championship game. They will play the undefeated Bemidji Lumberjacks, who were super impressive themselves, this weekend in beating Mankato West. The Spartans will be the decided underdog for a third straight week.
The improbable dream run to a state championship continues for the Rocori Spartan. It's about time to stop making the 'Cinderella' comparisons to the Rocori football team. Simply put, Cinderella NEVER looked this good!
