(GOWER, Mo.) The East Buchanan boys basketball team returned to the practice floor Monday after capturing their first district championship since 2006 on Saturday. As the top seed in Class 2 District 16, the Bulldogs topped Gallatin 41-37 to claim the prize. 

Even with six seniors and above average length, East Buchanan has their work cut out for them in the Class 2 Sectionals with one-loss West Platte looming. The Blue Jays needed a block as time expired to pull out a one-point victory over Mid-Buchanan in the Class 2 District 15 final. 

The Bulldogs (21-7) lost by 13 points in Weston on Feb. 7th but have won all seven games since. The rematch comes Wednesday at 7:45 from Staley High School.
