Libby Public School students celebrated Tuesday night with the Highway 37 Battle of the Kootenai trophy after the boys basketball and wrestling beat Eureka to reclaim the trophy.

The boys basketball team opened the action Tuesday afternoon with a 43-28 win over the Lions.

The Greenchain wrestling squad then rolled out the mats for its first home match of the season. Libby trailed 15-0 before the Greenchain rolled to a 46-21 triumph to secure the trophy.

The Lady Loggers basketball squad nearly made it a Libby sweep before losing a nailbiter to the Lady Lions.

The Loggers needed to win two of the three events to bring the Highway 37 Battle of the Kootenai trophy back home. The Loggers had won it four straight seasons before the Lions claimed the last two.
