Stanley-Boyd football embraces opportunity to play for a championship

After a dramatic comeback victory over Amherst in last Friday's state semifinals, the Stanley-Boyd football team will play for the WIAA Division 5 state championship this Thursday in Madison. It will be the Orioles sixth championship game appearance and their first since 1996.
Stanley-Boyd would like to add a third gold ball to their trophy case when they battle Lancaster in the D5 title game.
The Orioles were an offensive juggernaut during the regular season, outscoring the opposition 325-56 but showed true heart and determination in rallying for a 28-21 win over Amherst.
Stanley-Boyd running back Ronny Ponick says, "It's a big deal to me because that was my ultimate goal coming in as a freshman and having that ultimate goal finally be here makes me super excited and also the whole team so it's putting in a lot of effort for us to win this one."
Senior quarterback Tyler Sorensen adds, "It means a lot to me, something I've always dreamed of, I've always come to the games when I was little, watched the quarterbacks that played for varsity, hoped that I could fulfill that role some day and then to step in as a sophomore and grow and mature over the last three years and now we're going to state, it's tremendous, it's awesome."
