The Pacelli softball team had a taste of victory last year, when they were just one win away from the state title. Losing that championship game fed them with a hunger to get back there again this year, and so far the girls have taken the necessary steps to achieve that goal. The Cardinals were tied with Grantsburg 7-7 heading into the final inning, and Alicia Wimme hit a sacrifice fly to send home the winning run 8-7. The ladies advance to the state title game facing Poynette on Saturday.
Tigerton walked into the state semi-finals undefeated facing Thorp. Tigerton's pitcher Erin Ortner had an exceptional day pitched a complete game, striking out 7 assisting in the victory 2-0. Tigers will face Oakfield Saturday in the championship game.
