The Luverne girls’ basketball team posted its first postseason win in 13 years when the Cardinals opened the South Section 3AA Tournament Saturday.
Luverne, the tournament’s No. 1 seed, entertained No. 8 St. James to open the event.
The Cards overcame a sluggish start early in the game to register a 61-38 victory, which was the program’s first tournament conquest since 2007.
