This season, the Indians are the champions in the Great Northern Conference. They shutout Xavier 2-0 in the Appleton Sectional final to earn a berth in the tournament field. Kettle Moraine Lutheran was issued the second seed in the bracket. The Chargers are making their first appearance in the State Tournament. They defeated New Berlin West 10-4 in the Big Foot Sectional final to reach the State semifinals. During the regular season, the Chargers were crowned champions of the East Central Conference. Third-seeded Edgewood will be experiencing the State Tournament for the sixth time overall and for the first time since 2011. The Crusaders won the State title in their first-ever appearance in 2004 and then again in 2009. Prior to joining the WIAA, they won six WISAA titles. Those came in 1958, 1960, 1961, 1966, 1967 and 1969. They qualify this season with a 10-5 triumph over Waupun in the Portage Sectional final. The Crusaders were runners-up in the West Division of the Badger Conference this season. Fourth-seeded La Crosse Logan returns to the State Tournament for the first time since 2007 and for the eighth time in the program’s history. The Rangers won the Division 1 championship in 2001. They also won the title in 1971, when the tournament featured only one division, and they finished runner-up in 1949. This season, they tied for fourth place in the Mississippi Valley Conference standings and advanced through the Baldwin-Woodville Sectional with a 7-5 win over Medford in the final.
