MADISON - One of the most impressive seasons in all of the Northwoods this school year wrapped up Saturday.
The Tomahawk Hatchets captured the runner-up trophy in the Division 3 state softball tournament.
The Hatchets came up just short of the state title with their 2-0 loss, but were nothing but proud after the game of their incredible and historic season.
"To be able to get here and be able to finally achieve what we've wanted [to], we've talked about it, and to be able to experience it with our friends, some of us are like sisters. I'm really proud of our team," said Hatchets senior Courtney Theiler.
Hatchets Head Coach John Larson said the entire weekend was something he thinks will stick with Tomahawk's players and community for a long time.
"For two straight days the support we saw in the stands was unbelievable, I mean they were loud, they were exciting and they gave our girls a shot of energy. For all involved, what a great run, what a great achievement," said Larson.
