Smyer boys heading to state tournament


For the first time ever the Smyer Boys Basketball team is heading to the State Tournament in Austin.

Tuesday morning they received a Super State Sendoff from the school.

The 7th ranked Bobcats (29-5) will meet #1 Mumford (37-1), who have won 35 straight games.

They'll play in the Class 1A Division I State Semifinals Thursday, Mar. 6, at 10 a.m. in Austin.

While it's the first time for the boys, the Smyer girls won 2 State Titles in 3 trips in the last 5 years.

Smyer Boys Coach, Lonnie Burnam, has done a super job.

Last November Burnam was on the 700th I Beat Pete doing airplane basketball.

He certainly has taken flight with Smyer taking them to new heights. You can see that challenge here.

KCBD will have complete coverage with Smyer in Austin on Thursday.
