The Odessa High School boys basketball team took fourth place at the state 1B tournament in Spokane last week after a grueling post-season of play. Some losses along the way meant that the boys had to claw their way through the losers' bracket, just as they did during the district tournament, but nevertheless earned their way into the trophy round.

Two Odessa boys earned medals for sportsmanship along the way, Jayd Jennings and Marcus King. A full account of the games leading up to the Tigers' fourth-place trophy is provided on page 4.

Photographer Stan Dammel was kind enough to provide the pictures from the tournament that accompany the story. It was not possible for The Record's employees to make it to every Odessa game, so it was also much appreciated that each game's results were posted by head coach Larry Weber to our email account soon after play concluded. All of this help saved us a lot of extra time and even some additional late nights at the office this past week.
