Longmont High hails first boys basketball state title in 76 years
By Karen Antonacci, Staff Writer, Times-Call
Longmont High head boys basketball coach Jeff Kloster pointed to the boys basketball state championship banner hanging in the gym during Friday's pep rally.
"It was 76 years ago that Longmont High School last celebrated a state championship in basketball," Jeff Kloster said before the gathered student body.
Gesturing to the boys basketball team assembled behind him, he continued. "When these guys come back years from now, they can look over there and they will see the year 2018. When they look in the mirror everyday, they can know they are state champions for life," Jeff Kloster finished to thunderous applause from the bleachers.
The team won the state title after a nail-biter of a game Saturday night against Lewis-Palmer. Junior Oakley Dehning scored the game-winning basket, taking the game to 62-59.
