LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - When the girls state tournament tips off in Green Bay on Thursday the La Crosse Central Red Raiders will be apart of the field for the first time since 1995.
The Red Raiders practiced at Mitchell Hall Tuesday afternoon to get a feel for what it will be like playing on a larger stage.
Friday will be just the 4th trip to state in school history and the Red Raiders are excited to make school history. "This team actually achieved a lot of the goals we had set at the beginning of the year, it's a byproduct of the work they have put in and we will sit back and look at the historical prospective after it's all done but right now were just avoiding the ride," said Head Coach Nahmie George.
"It's pretty exciting a lot of us didn't expect to get this far but were really happy we did and were just looking forward to the experience," said Guard Brooke Baldwin.
"It's pretty exciting right now were trying to get everything figured out and see what this week holds and going to come for us were excited and looking forward to play this Friday," said Guard Brittany Baldwin.
