Blaize Klossner, Webmaster

Both the Rolla boys and girls basketball teams won their semifinal match-up and will be playing in the district championship on Friday March 1st, at Union, Missouri. The Lady Bulldogs will be up first, playing at 5:30, with the boys to follow.

The girls took on the district hosts, the Union Wildcats. After a slow start and cold shooting, the Lady Bulldogs fought to continue their playoff run and reach their second straight district championship.

The boys faced the St. Clair Bulldogs last night, Rolla took a commanding lead in the 1st quarter and never looked back. The Bulldogs will play in their 5th straight district title game.

The Rolla activities office will be paying for a pep bus for students to ride to the game in. The cost for the bus is completely free, the students will only need to pay for their admission. Students must report to the lower commons at 3:30pm. Go Bulldogs!
