Immanuel Lutheran, Elk Mound and other boys area teams advance to sectionals

Mar. 2—Regionals play is in the books for the boys basketball postseason and several area schools are still alive going into sectionals play. Among those still playing are the Eau Claire Immanuel Lutheran Lancers.

After getting past No. 6 Clayton 54-47 in the Division 5 Sectional-1A regional semifinals, the third-seeded Lancers would have traveled to No. 2 Birchwood had it not been for No. 7 Siren springing a 66-55 upset on the Bobcats Friday, bringing the Dragons to Eau Claire.
