The Dominican Knights were not quite the team they were a year ago and this state Division 4 title was not the foregone conclusion that last year's was, so kudos to first-year coach Derek Berger and his squad for challenging the state's best and coming out on top in Madison last weekend.
Minutes, in effect the entire game, that Diamond Stone, Duane Wilson and Jack Jelacic each played in Dominican's state semifinal win over Cuba City on March 7.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
TEAM OF THE WEEK
