The Gordon-Rushville Mustangs dominated the Western Trails Conference Tournament this weekend as both the boys and girls routed all opponents on their way to first place.
The Lady Mustangs swept the tournament with an average margin of 17.3 points. They started their dominance Thursday with a 62-48 win over Morrill on the road. They then defeated top-seed Hemingford 85-70 to advance to the championship game, where they beat Kimball 60-39, leaving no doubt who the conference champions were.
