Kiel Headed to State

Good news from The Little City That Does Big Things:

Kiel's men's basketball team is headed to state for the first time since my dad was on a state-bound team in the 1970s.

Brandon Gries' three-pointer with 2:02 to go put Kiel up 48-47 after they trailed by as many as 11 points in the third quarter. His two free throws with 26 seconds left put the Raiders up 52-49 and then the Kiel defense stuffed Seymour on its final attempt to force overtime and the large Kiel contingent erupted in celebration when the final horn sounded.

Congratulations - Go Raiders!
