“It’s hard to even process it all. As we were walking off the floor and seeing that see of purple up there and all the Baraga faithfully, cheering everybody on. It’s just a great feeling and I know that this is some these girls will remember forever,” said Baraga Head coach Tyler Larson. “Their families and their supporting fans are all so proud of them. I’m so happy for them to be able to do this, be alongside them, and honored to have helped lead them to this point.”
