The 1967 Holdrege basketball and golf teams are being recognized by the Nebraska High School Hall of Fame. They will receive the Golden Anniversary Team Award.  The Dusters basketball team went 23-1, losing only to Grand Island, one of eight Class A teams on their schedule. They defeated Schuyler's "Jolly Green Giants" 66-54 in the state final. In golf, the Dusters shot the lowest single-round Class B score (237) to date while winning the first of back-to-back state titles.
