Lincoln Prep beats NEHS during district semifinals

Northeast News
February 29, 2012

After winning their first Interscholastic League championship in five seasons, the Northeast High School varsity boys’ basketball team set their sights on claiming the Class 4 District 14 championship. However, it wasn’t meant to be.

During two previous contests, the NEHS boys defeated Lincoln Prep, but during district play, they lost to the Blue Tigers 76-74 during the District 14 semifinals tournament at the Interscholastic Fieldhouse on Feb. 22.

“The boys had a good effort and managed to get as close as two points before the final minute when the Blue Tigers pulled away to account for the final score,” said NEHS Activities/Athletic Director Jim Conaway.

The Vikings finished their season with a 19-5 record and as both Interscholastic League champions and Interscholastic League Invitational Tournament champions. The Viking girls ended their season with an improved effort in a 46-33 loss against Southwest in a first-round district game on Feb 20. Coach Shavon Robinson helped the Viking girls finish with their best in six seasons – 8 wins and 17 losses.

The Class 4 District 14 tournament will wrap up Thursday with championship games in both the boys and girls divisions.

The Lincoln Prep girls will play Notre Dame de Sion at 5:30 p.m. and the Lincoln Prep boys will play Center (a 62-58 winner over East in the other Wednesday night game) at 7 p.m. Games will be held at the Interscholastic League Fieldhouse, 6410 Swope Parkway, Kansas City, Mo.
