Colfax boys basketball team's trip to state allows Vikings a trip down memory lane

This is a special time for the Colfax boys basketball team and the entire Vikings community. Colfax beat Boyceville in this past Saturday's sectional final and punched their ticket to the WIAA state tournament for the first time in 35 years.
This is video from the 1978 WIAA Class "C" state tournament, the Colfax boys with Bob Fehr and Mike Kiekhafer knocked off Coleman in the semifinals and Pardeeville in the state championship game. That was a very special time in their lives and this week is especially meaningful for Bob and Mike because their sons' Hayden Fehr and Ethin Kiekhafer both start for the 2012 Vikings. Ethin says he's a big fan of this 1978 video.
Ethin Kiekhafer: "Yeah, I think I've watched the state tape like five times. He tells me not to take it for granted at all, he always tells me how much fun he had with his teammates, he said it should be a great experience for me."
Hayden Fehr: "He's been talking about it more since we made it. He's really happy for us, says don't take any of it for granted, just enjoy every minute of it, because he still remembers it, and we'll remember it for the rest of our lives."
