The main piece of hardware is also coming back to Gering High School with them; the 2021 Team Championship Trophy.
Gering becomes the first team from the B-4 District to win a state title since McCook back in 1992. Gering was Class A when they won the title in 1997.
Just a huge win for the program and for Gering High School. Congratulations to the team and head coach Jarred Berger.
