— Ottawa High's basketball team knocked off defending Class 3A state champion Norton, 67-57, Friday night in the semifinals of the Goodland Tournament.

Lee Baldwin scored 22 points, Clint Bones added 13 and Caleb Blakesley 10 for Ottawa (3-0). Norton (2-1) entered as the No. 1-ranked team in 3A.

"It was a little breakthrough for us," Ottawa coach David Grover said. "We came out well and shot well. Lee Baldwin and Will Hendrix hit two threes in the first quarter that gave us a 13-point lead. We were never below double digits after that."

Ottawa plays in the tourney's title game tonight.
