‘The run continues:’ Auburn accepts invite to play in inaugural national tournament after WIAA Class 3A state title

Auburn’s storied run isn’t over yet. 

After winning the WIAA Class 3A state state championship on Saturday — its first in school history — the Trojans (27-2) have accepted an invitation to play in the inaugural State Champions Invitational in Florida April 7-9, a national high school basketball tournament and a branch-off of the GEICO Nationals.

The four-team tournament will be televised on ESPN networks.

“It gives us another month to be around each other and coach these kids,” Auburn coach Ryan Hansen said. “I presented it to the team on Monday after school and their reaction was priceless, man. They were jumping around, so excited.”
