Reb Elimelech M’Lizhensk (Part III)

The Breakfast Of Champions (Conclusion)

Overtime proved to be as tense and white-knuckled as the fourth quarter.

In a slick maneuver he managed to split the defense and went up virtually slamming it to give Monona Grove the lead.

The Breakfast Of Champions (Part IV)

Monona Grove was headed to “State” and the Silver Eagle fans went insane. The coming games would not be played in monotonous high school gyms erected in the 1950s. They were off to the University of Wisconsin's colossal Kohl Center where they would play before a crowd of 12,000. The games would be broadcast to a statewide television audience of millions, as a battery of newspapers and stations would be begging for interviews. The Kohl Center was just a short drive from Monona, technically in the same city.
