This past week, loyal Bruin superfans were busy driving back and forth between Placer High School and Colfax High School. On Wednesday, January 16th, the Lady Bruins basketball team went to Colfax to take on their rival, the Falcons. Unfortunately, the game did not go as planned for the Bruins, with an end result of 50-41 Colfax. The next night, the varsity mens basketball team traveled down the hill to Placer high school. With large superfan sections for both Placer and Bear River, students screamed back and forth in the hopes that their school would take home a victory. At half time the score was 43-16 in Placer’s favor. At the end of the game, the Bruin’s superfan section was quiet, for Bear River had just lost to Placer with a score of 64-44. On Friday, January 18th, it was the girls turn to take on the Hillmen of Placer High School. The Lady Bruins started out strong and stayed consistent throughout the whole game. However, the Hillmen were not going down without a fight, resulting in a close game. To end the week, the Lady Bruins took home a win of 48-42.
