Legends make it to day two of districts; can clinch a state tournament berth tonight

    (Cowley, WY) – The Lander Legends started their road to the state tournament in Sheridan next week battling the Green River Knights in the first round of the Legion A West District Tournament in Cowley, Wyoming.
