New Haven, Mo. - It will be a packed house Friday night at New Haven as both New Haven and Elsberry’s boys and girls will battle it out for District Titles.
With New Haven’s win over Crossroads 48-27 and Elsberry knocking off Kingston 64-19 in last night’s semifinals, they join their girl’s teams after the Lady Rocks defeated Barat Academy 50-21 while Elsberry cruised passed Crystal City 63-43 in Tuesday night’s girl’s semifinals.
Tomorrow night Elsberry’s boys will look to defend their district title after defeating Crossroads last year, while the Lady Shamrocks will be going for a three-peat. Tomorrow night will also be the seventh straight year that the Lady Shamrocks have played for a district championship.
In his 30th year as the New Haven Boys Head Basketball Coach, Ray Steinhoff will have coached his team into a district title game for the 22nd time in hopes of winning an 11th career district championship and the first time since 2011.
