N.E.W. Lutheran is now just one win away from claiming back-to-back state tournament berths. A 63-58 win over Wausaukee last night lifted them to a sectional final tomorrow at 2:00 PM against Newman Catholic at Pulaski High School.
The Blazers are the number one ranked team in the state in Division 5 but were tested last night. It was the narrowest margin of victory so far in the post season. Dakota Zinser helped put an exclamation point on the win with a high flying breakaway dunk.
N.E.W. is now (24-1) while Newman Catholic enters tomorrows state qualifier at (20-6) after topping Columbus Catholic 39-34 last night.
