Boys get pair of come-from-behind wins

After winning their first three games with relative ease, the New Prague Trojan boys basketball team claimed a pair of come-from-behind wins against Holy Family Catholic and Rochester Mayo last week.

The Trojans (5-0, No. 6 Class AAA) were scheduled to play at Austin Tuesday, Dec. 21, after this edition of The New Prague Times went to press. They will have a week off before returning to action at the Winona State University Warrior Classic. Their first-round opponent will be LaCrosse (WI) Logan at 6:45 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 29. The Trojans will face either Winona or White Bear Lake on Thursday, Dec. 30.
