Polars on their way to state…again
The Minneapolis North boys basketball team has advanced to the 2017 Minnesota State High School League’s Class A basketball tournament once again. The Polars begin tournament play against Red Lake on Thursday, March 23, at 11 a.m. The game will be played at the University of Minnesota’s Williams Arena.
In case anyone has forgotten, the Polars were the Class A basketball champions last year. The win was their first since 2003. North High School has doubled its enrollment in the past couple of years and continues to produce great athletes — and scholars. In 2016, North increased its graduation rate, again, to 81.5 percent. Go Polars!
The North High Polars will practice for Thursday’s big game from 5-6:30 p.m. today at the North Community High School gym, 1500 James Ave. N., Minneapolis. Media is welcome!
