North Woods High School is in Cook. The Grizzlies will face last year's state third place team from Central Minnesota Christian, which is in prinsburg. The third-seeded Bluejays are making their third straight trip to state. North Woods won the Section 7A crown on Friday in Duluth and will take a 29-and-1 overall record to the Twin Cities. The team's only senior is especially excited.

"Just being able to play down there and on the big floor in front of big crowds is something that I have always wanted to do and I'm looking forward to it," says senior center George Bibeau.

"Down there, they are going to be bigger, so we are going to have to rebound a little better and get into some transition," says junior guard Brendan Parson.

The Grizzlies and Bluejays will play Thursday at 5:00 p.m. at Williams Arena in the Class A Quarterfinals.
