This will be the 10th appearance at State for the girls' team and it will be their first since 2007.

The Eskomos (25-5) are unseeded and will face third seeded New London-Spicer (24-5) in the State AA Quarterfinals on Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. at Mariucci Arena. The Wildcats have reached State 15 times and have won two championships.
