Thursday night, Mosinee will make the school's first ever appearance at the state softball tournament.
After taking down #1 Baldwin-Woodville, the 2nd-ranked Indians get 7th ranked McFarland in the D2 semifinals.
We've come so close, we've knocked on the door so many times," said coach Todd Felch. "And something always happened and stopped us from getting there. To finally get over the hump this year i owe them all a thanks of gratitude, .Thanks for helping the program develop the way it has.. and to help these girls get to the point where they believe they can do it and actually make it this year"
With only 2 losses this season, Mosinee credits their success to strong pitching and tough defense. Now, they'll be remembered as the first group to make it to Madison.
"Its almost like a dream come true to a lot of us," said junior pitcher Rochelle Koshalek. "We work so well on the field i think we almost deserve it at this point..especially when we get older were gonna be able to say we went to state were the first team.. and i mean our whole community is awesome.. theyre having send offs and fan buses and everything before going to state.
"I'm so excited," added junior Kate Zimick. "This is what we've been working for the last four years. And even before we got into high school this is what we work up to so its just awesome to be able to go to state and play in Madison."
Mosinee's game with McFarland starts at approximately 8:00 Thursday night.
