MADISON, Wisconsin (WXOW) - The Aquinas Blugolds swept the court, defeating the Lodi Blue Devils for the title in the Division 3 championship game Saturday.
A victory that meant just as much to the Aquinas student fans in the stands.
"I'm so happy for them I could cry," said Aquinas senior Rachel Reinhart. "I'm so happy. They deserve it so much."
The Blugolds clinched the D3 state title. It's the second D3 win for this team in three years. Seniors said it's a strong legacy to leave.
"We've watched this team since our freshman year and watching our seniors get the state gold, it's awesome," Reinhart said.
Super power plays on the court means Aquinas has superfans in the stands, like Andrew Pryor.
"Well this is the super Blugold outfit," Pryor said, pointing to his superhero uniform. "I'm just really proud to wear it, especially at this moment. This is my last year in high school, and I'm really proud to be here, cheering on my team."
For Aquinas fans, who said they try to be at every game, victory couldn't be sweeter.
"Oh, it means the world," said senior Chris Noyes. "To end like this is just incredible."
