Interstate-8 Basketball Tournaments! by: Lexi Bowdish

The Manteno Girls & Boys Basketball teams continue to flourish through their seasons as they participated in the Interstate-8 tournament this past week. The boys’ basketball team finished the tournament 3-1, and finished in second place. The team defeated Wilmington, 74-47, Coal City, 60-58, Peotone, 69-45, but ended just short of first place after losing in a hard-fought game to Sandwich, 59-42. The girls’ basketball team concluded the I-8 tournament with a record of 1-1. The team lost to a strong Lisle team, 60-27, but came back and defeated Wilmington, 44-33. Congratulations to both teams on their impressive runs in the conference tournament!
