Newman celebrates girls state basketball title

By Russ Owens

(WAOW)-  In case you didn't know, the Newman girls basketball team won the D4 state title two Saturdays ago, but the girls hadnt yet gotten to celebrate it with their fans back home.

And that's what the team got to enjoy on Monday as the school gave Newman its official celebration.

The Cards of course blew out Blackhawk by 34 points in the title game.

You'd think the excitement might have worn off after more than a week, but not for Newman.

Says Senior Katie Siewert, "RIght now we're just living in the moment, it's all so new that we're the champions of division four, it's a really cool feeling. Now it's back to reality, back to normal life, back to school and it's starting to hit that we're the champions."

Says Junior Taylor Thomas, "We're still equally as excited as when we just won. It's such a great excitement, the feeling never really wears off, we're always gonna be proud of this."

Says Head Coach Tom Weinkauf, "It will wear off sometime, but I'm not gonna let it wear off for quite a while yet."
