Wisconsin Rapids - The Assumption Royals are sectional champions! They defeated Regis/McDonell 2-0 to advance to the state semi-finals!
Assumption, a four seed in the tournament, had to defeat two one seeded teams to reach states.
An accomplishment that this team has been dreaming about.
"I've wanted to do this," Clara Kubis, Assumption junior said. "I watched Gracie Wendell, she's an alumna, and I watched her 5 years ago do this. When I was a little girl we made posters. My whole team has just dreamed of this since we were little girls playing in middle school so its unreal."
"These girls stepped up," Jim Wendels, Assumption head coach said. "It was a tough road to get here but we've conditioned and trained for it and I'm just so proud of them for doing that. They worked hard."
The Royals will compete for a division 4 state title on Friday.
