|The Minnesota High School Ultimate League hosted their state tournament the weekend of June second and third in Maple Plain, MN. The weather was solid throughout, except for a brief shower on Sunday afternoon.
In the women’s division, the initial seedings held through pool play with Cretin Derham-Hall going 5-0 relatively easily. In the finals, CDH met Hopkins in a highly anticipated game. Hopkins came out with a zone early and worked it up the field behind the strong play of Erica Baken. CDH played an effective huck and D game on offense and played tight person D. Hopkins was up 7-6 before a lightening delay. With the delay lifted, Hopkins scored again, taking the half. Hopkins scored one more before the softcap. But despite a 9-6 score and a game to 11 CDH came out firing behind the tremendous play of Natalie De Palma and Al Chlebeck, running off 5 in a row for the win.
