Waverly-Shell Rock drops Harlan for 3A State Title


Waverly-Shell Rock had to come from behind for the 3rd straight game as the Go-Hawks defeated Harlan 48-41.  The win secured the Go-Hawks first basketball state championship since 2007.

Klinton Carlson led the way scoring 14 points.  The WSR senior was also named captain of the All-Tournament Team.  Dan Stensland added 13 points in the championship victory.

WSR had to rally from an early deficit.  Jake Daeges hit a second quarter 3 pointer that put Harlan on top by 8 points.  The Go-Hawks would rally, and a Jake Velky three late in the half put WSR back on top by 3 at the break.

The win capped off an unlikely run after the Go-Hawks opened their first 7 games of the season with a 3-4 record.
