Ellsworth's Cody Schilling gestured to the crowd as he left the game as his team captured the Class 1A boys' basketball championship in 2008 at Target Center.

Minnesota's first official basketball tournament for boys' high school teams was contested in 1913. Our first official basketball tournament for girls' high school teams was contested in 1976.

Thus, there was no need for Wendell Fredin, a junior guard, and his Comfrey High School friends to clarify by gender when receiving permission from parents to attend the 1953 "State Tourney" as fans.
