Lind, Ritzville Broncos Hope To Follow State Football Title With A State Basketball Crown

Posted: Updated:

RITZVILLE, Wash. - Lind-Ritzville-Sprague already has one win in the 2013 State B Basketball Tournament but back in the Ritzville area, community members and businesses continue supporting the team from afar.

"The Broncos are at state, we're going to win," Pharmacist Sam Duncan said. "These kids have the potential of growing into Cougars (WSU) and their colors will only be slightly different."

Across the street at Hometown Family Medicine, Valerie Eckley and Nyla Hennings hope for the best.

"People support wonderfully. We're all alumni of Ritzville so yeah, we're good supporters," Nyla Hennings said.

"There's actually a group of older folks who are actually pretty faithful about following this team, too," Valerie Eckley said. "Not just the parents, but some of the community members that travel around and see what is going on."

Cheryle Allan hasn't been to a game in a long while, but that doesn't stop her from sporting her Broncos sweatshirt.

"I love our Broncos. I'd love to wear this shirt everyday, but of course you can't," Allan said. "I wear it every Friday because that's what we do on Fridays. We do it to support them."

This school year has already been a huge success for the school district as the football team was crowned state champions in the fall. Now in the winter sports season they hope for the same for their boys basketball squad. They will get their answer this weekend.
