Tomorrow, the Legacy Sabers will make their first state tournament appearance in school history.
Legacy pulled a huge upset over Mandan in the semifinals of the WDA tournament to earn the berth. This was a really big moment for Legacy. The past couple of years the Sabers missed going to the state tournament by a point each year.
This season, Legacy will be the No. 2 seed and they are excited for what this means for this year and the future.
“This team was kind of built with a lot of the seniors that we have now,” senior Aleix Ness said. “It feels good to know that we have a good program coming up too and they can be inspired but what they are seeing us do this year.”
“It meant a lot because we have been working for it for the past three years as a varsity team,” senior Karissa Albaugh said. “It was relieving finally making it. A lot of us are seniors.”
Legacy will face Fargo North in the quarterfinals tomorrow at 10:00 a.m.
