BANGOR, WI - After a couple close calls, the Bangor boys basketball team is finally heading to Madison for the Division 5 state tournament.
Before this season, Bangor lost in the sectional final two years in a row.
The Cardinals are the number one seed in the Division 5 field, and will play Green Bay NEW Lutheran on Friday at 9:05 am.
"Each year we try to get a little bit better. we have been very very close the last few years. We definitely has taken another step this year. the rewards are starting to pay off," Head coach Jordan Laufenberg said.
"We have a mindset that we want a ball. not only a ball but a gold ball. We have to treat this like a regular game day. It's another high school basketball game. Different area, bigger area, bigger setting. We just have to go out there and play like we normally do and we will be fine," Senior Drew Johnson said.
