The West Fargo Flash fourth-grade boys basketball team will compete in the upcoming Great Five State Shootout on Saturday, July 14, and Sunday, July 15, at the Target Center in Minneapolis.

The event will feature the top one or two teams from Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wisconsin and Iowa in an eight-team format.

The Flash, consisting of 9 and 10-year-old boys from West Fargo, won the fourth-grade boys division at the North Dakota Pacesetter tournament in April, which advanced them to the Great Five State Shootout. The team also took first at both the 2017 and 2018 Junior Grand Am Tournaments in Grand Forks.
