Valdez basketball teams take Aurora Conference Titles

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Aurora Conference tournament rolled on down in Valdez, with the Conference championship games taking place last night.
It was a great day for the host school with both Valdez teams winning Conference titles.
In the Girl's title game, Valdez defeated Huchison 33-23.
This loss will send Hutchison down to the Consolation finals against Galena, who survived elimination after defeating Monroe Catholic 56-46.
In the boy's title game, Valdez won with a 60-44 effort over the Eielson Ravens.
The Ravens will now compete in the consolation final against Monroe Catholic who advanced to the second place game by defeating Galena 47-24 earlier today.
These second place games are just as important as the title games, since the first and second place teams in the Aurora Conference receive automatic bids to the 3A State Championship tournament in Anchorage at the end of the month.
