Harrisburg hosts ‘international friendly’
The Harrisburg boys basketball team has played for state championships. There are even a couple of banners hanging in the school gym showing off a couple of state titles the Bulldogs won last decade.
Usually, the state playoffs are about as far as a small school will go. Because of travel expenses, teams rarely get to venture outside the state to play other teams across the country.
With that in mind, the Bulldogs haven’t had the opportunity to play basketball on a national level. But they took their program to an international level on Tuesday.

Bulldogs earn ‘best in show’ awards
The Rock Bridge girls basketball team achieved something rather unprecedented this past season. The Bruins had their entire starting five receive All-State honors.
A task like that is seemingly impossibly for a baseball team, but the New Franklin Bulldogs were bound to give it a try this season.
New Franklin had five players make the MHSBCA Class 1 All-State team, or exactly half of its starting lineup. It’s the most All-State baseball players the program has had in a single season since 2005.
