Trojans denied chance to dance

The New Prague Trojan boys basketball team was hoping for a ticket to the Big Dance, the state boys basketball tournament, as they faced the St. Thomas Academy Cadets Wednesday, March 19, at the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester.

But the defending state champion Cadets used a smothering defense to stop the Trojans' run and claim the ticket for themselves in a 47-28 win.

New Prague ends its season with a 23-6 record.
