Superior, Wisc. - After making it to State last season, there were high expectations for the Superior girls' basketball team, with their collection of senior stars and the Spartans wouldn't have it any other way. A goal was to get back to State and they have. Now, the next goal is to take State.

The Spartans are first going to take it one game at a time. Superior will face Mukwonago in the State Division I Semifinals on Friday night at the Resch Center in Green Bay.

"I said the first day (of practice) that we want to go back to State and go one game further and win it and we made it to the final four for the first time in school history last year and a lot of teams say that and collapse under the pressure and these girls haven't. They have been very mentally strong and resilient."

"We obviously want that gold ball so bad, but we know that we have been successful this season and we if we do lose, because honestly, it is anybody's game, then we know that we played our hearts out and that is all that matters in the end," says senior guard Hailey Kontny.

"We feel like we have a way better chance this year and we have worked real hard and last year, our goal was just to make it to state, but now, we actually we think we can win it," says junior guard Alyssa Correll.

Superior faces Mukwonago at 8:15 p.m. on Friday night.
