Crandon Girls Basketball To Appear At State Tournament In Green Bay

School District of Crandon

Signs of support started appearing last weekend in Crandon after the school’s girls basketball team qualified for the state tournament for the second time in three years.

The Cardinals are now one of just four teams still alive in Division 4.

Coach Keegan Kincaid said supporters around the team have played a role in its success.

“That’s one thing.  We’re blessed with an awesome community in the Northwoods and Forest County and Crandon and even the surrounding teams within our conference have played a huge supporting role,” he said.

Crandon made the state tournament in 2018 in Kincaid’s first year as coach.

He says his team is focused on winning at state this year.

Two years ago, just making it to state felt like the accomplishment.

“It set the stage for these sophomores-now-seniors to play at a different level and understand what it takes to get there.  They’ve really upped the program.  They don’t want to just go there and be a part of it.  They want to go there and make a statement.  That’s the difference between this year and the previous state run,” Kincaid said.

Crandon will play La Crosse Aquinas in the Division 4 state semifinals in Green Bay on Thursday night.
