LANDER – The 1A East and West regional basketball tournaments were held this past weekend, and three area schools survived to play this week in Casper during the State Tournament.
The Encampment Tigers showed up in Lander for the 1A West tournament as the No. 1 seed, and proved why they were the number one. The Tigers dismantled Dubois in their opening game 80-39. Next up was Farson-Eden, who was able to hang around a little more than Encampment is used to, but fell to the Carbon County squad 63-52 to advance to the regional championship. In the final game, they went up against the team that gave them their only loss this season... Saratoga.
