CROOKSTON — Brooke Heggie had one of her best basketball tournaments of the offseason in the Twin Cities in late May. Little did she know at the time, but that performance led her to a national championship.
The Crookston High School sophomore-to-be last week played on the Minnesota North Tartan team that won the AAU girls basketball 14-and-under national tournament in Florida.
“It was amazing, incredible,’’ Heggie said. “I never thought I could be a part of something that big.’’
She almost wasn’t.
