Not only did the Hi-Liners finish in the top half of a tournament with multiple out-of-state teams and nearly every Class A school, but the team finished with four placers.

Additionally, senior Brandon Larson broke the school's career win record and sophomore Zach Doty broke the 100-win mark for his career on the tournament's opening day.

Ever since Barnes County North girls basketball coach Randy Hooey was in the third grade, he's been around the Barnes County basketball tournaments in various roles.
