Chippewa Falls, Wis. (WEAU)- The Chippewa Falls girls softball team is headed to Madison for the fourth straight year, the Big Rivers and sectional champs are determined to bring home some hardware this year. The Cardinals have never won a state title, and while they still need to win two games to get to the championship game, the Chi-Hi girls say playing and beating SPASH on Saturday is their ultimate goal.
Evie Schaller, the Chi-Hi Junior Shortstop said, "I'm just going to take it game-by-game, pitch-by-pitch, do what we can do, every inning, every out, just there in the championship game with SPASH and win it this year."
Liz Jarosz, Chi-Hi Junior First Baseman said, "This is our year to get the gold ball, we have never been state champs in school history, I think it's our year, we've beaten SPASH before this year."
Jared Faherty, Chi-Hi Head Coach said, "As a program and as a team we understand the one thing we haven't done is win the gold ball and it doesn't mean that we're going to win it because it's the one thing we haven't done but I think our kids understand in the end it's our ultimate goal."
The Chippewa Falls girls softball team will play Sussex Hamilton in the WIAA Division 1 state quarterfinals Thursday morning in Madison.
