Ansley/Litchfield Boys Advance to State!!

The Ansley/Litchfield boys basketball team qualified for the boys state basketball tournament on Monday by claiming the D1-6 district championship. The Spartans fell behind early to Lourdes Central Catholic but fought back and trailed by just a point at the half and then led 25-22 at the end of the third quarter. In the fourth, the Spartans created some distance before Lourdes got to within 33-30 but Ansley/Litchfield would score the final 6 points of the game to claim victory 39-30. Ansley/Litchfield was led by Jeff Cunningham who had a game high 12 points. Caden Holm also finished in double figures with 10 which all came in the 2nd half. The Spartans improve to 20-4 on the season and will now prepare for the boys state basketball tournament which begins March 10th for Class D1.

In other D1 district action Monday night, the Burwell Longhorns advanced to the state tournament. Burwell remained undefeated on the year but it wasn’t easy as they held off Kenesaw 44-40 to claim the D1-1 district title.
