WAYNE – A pair of consolation games and one of the championship contests during the 2019 Great Northeast Nebraska Shootout will be carried on the radio and waynedailynews.com Tuesday.
Four games will be played at Wayne High and four from Rice Auditorium on the campus of Wayne State College.
The lone game covered on The City ‘KCTY’ 98.9/1590 will first start around 10:45 a.m. as Wayne High (4-5) takes on Laurel-Concord-Coleridge (7-1) for the fifth consecutive year in the holiday tournament, eighth time in past nine years.
Wayne High began the tournament with a 74-10 win over Pender before losing to Hartington Cedar Catholic 58-44 Saturday while the Bears first edged Arlington (69-62) and suffered a 63-50 setback to Auburn.
