The Chippewa Falls McDonell boys basketball team will make their first ever trip to the WIAA state tournament this week. The Macks will play Sheboygan Lutheran Thursday afternoon at the Kohl Center. The Macks won last week's sectional beating Augusta and Benton along the way. The trip to Madtown is extra special for McDonell's nine seniors.
Kyle Cody: "It's very exciting, we've been very close the past few years but we just haven't come through, now being our senior year, have a chance to play in the Kohl Center, there's nothing better."
Austin Hiess: "I mean it started when we were freshmen, in the weight room, conditioning, putting in a lot of effort and it paid off for us.
Ryan Baier: "We're going to take it in right away, a bigger area, a lot of people, we're just going to remember it's just a game and do what we do best, play as a team, listen to the leaders and our captains and have a lot of fun down there."
