NORTH MANKATO, Minnesota -- The Eagles are heading to a place never seen in the history of their softball program -- the state championship game.
Lourdes defeated Annandale 8-6 in the quarterfinal round before defeating Pipestone 2-1 to advance to their first title game in program history.
Eagles Head Coach Becky Macken was emotional describing the win and her seniors playing their final game in the championship round.
"Some of them have been playing for four-to-five years now with us now so this is just the icing on the cake, they deserve this so lets hope we can get the win for them," Macken said.
