The fourth-grade Moose Lake/Willow River basketball team competed in the Pacesetters State Tournament over the weekend, having qualified by winning Region 4 earlier in the year.

In game 1, they faced a familiar foe in Esko and defeated the Eskomos 24-17. In the semi-finals, the Rebels lost to the eventual state champ, Stewartville, 28-19. That set up a tough third place battle with Grand Rapids. The Rebels were down 15-12 at the half, but tightened up the defense in the second half to down the Thunderhawks 29-24 and come away with some state hardware.
