LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – La Crosse Central High School held a pep assembly early Thursday morning to help send off their Red Raiders girls basketball team to the state tournament.
The Red Raiders will play their first state tournament game tomorrow. It is their first trip to the state tournament since 1995.
“Everybody wants this going into the year, but we’ve never really expected it. Just the fact that we’re able to accomplish this and it’s pretty exciting,” Central Senior guard Brittany Baldwin said.
Red Raiders head basketball coach Nahmie George said he believes fans should buy into his program, because his team is different for various reasons.
“We play good defense, we are a hard-working team. You’re going to see us flying around the gym and trying to make plays, and we’ll have a little bit of an underdog mentality.”
The Red Raiders will play the DeForest Norskies on Friday at 3:15 p.m at the Resch Center in Green Bay. The winner of Friday’s game will play the winner of Notre Dame or Pius XI for the state championship.
