After taking second place in the state tournament last year, the Pacelli softball team set a goal the first week of practice to win it all this season. Excelling at conference, regional's and sectionals, the girls met their goal as state champions, winning 8-3 against Poynette on Saturday.
Head coach Ann Molski said, "they never gave up, never stopped until that last out in the 7th. Good teams answer, but we came back and answered them."
This was the Cardinals fourth appearance in the state tournament, and their second championship in program history.
