Flawless Hayfield girls are state-bound
Hayfield Lady Vikes put on another spectacular show last Thursday, March 10, as they pounded Grand Meadow, 65-41, in the Section 1A girls’ basketball championship game at Mayo Civic Arena.
Hayfield takes their sensational 31-0 record, their daunting defense, and their overpowering offense to the State tournament. The only undefeated girls’ basketball team in Minnesota, Hayfield advances to the “Big Show” for the first time since 2008.
Though the final score doesn’t reflect it, the game versus the Superlarks was not a cake-walk.
“I push them hard in practices, just so they’re ready for challenges like this one,” Coach Kasey Krekling said. “I’m not OK with them just being OK. I want them to be great. I’m really proud of them.”
