“We did very well, considering the weather conditions,” said coach Mark Nuss of his team’s performance on the cold and windy evening. “This may have been one of the coldest nights with the win in my 37 years of doing this.”

The last time the South Winneshiek boys’ basketball team qualified for the State Tournament, “Walk Like an Egyptian” was the top song on the radio, “Beverly Hills Cop II” was one of the most popular movies of the year, and Scottie Pippen was a rookie member of a Chicago Bulls team that had not yet won any of its six NBA titles. On Saturday night in Manchester, that changed as the 2020-2021 Warrior squad won its Substate championship game, 63-57, over Gladbrook-Reinbeck and punched its ticket to the State Tournament!
