The Heartland Boys Basketball Team faced Fullerton in the D1-4 District Final at Aurora on Tuesday evening. Both teams came ready to compete for their ticket to the Boys State Basketball Tournament. An exciting game kept the crowd on the edge of their seats, but Fullerton managed to break away from the Huskies in the last quarter with the lead.
