To have 7 EDC titles last 10 years and no girls higher than the DAC you can't count this years team because they haven't set foot on the court. The banner on the wall in the south gym only keeps a total of State champs. As of this weekend it showed 122 titles but who's counting.

wolves65, I read in one of your previous posts that you dont follow Class A girls basketball much, if thats the case then how can you judge Fargo South!? They have had one of the most successful programs in the State for most of this coaching staffs tenure, LOOK it UP. Who do you think develops that talent? Have you been to their summer camps for elemenary and Jr high girls? summer daily workouts? summer team camps? Name me another team that started 2 sophs and a jr last year and went 24-1, and 3 jrs and a soph this year and went 21-4. Won the EDC tournament for the 5th year in a row? Lets see, they were 2-1 against Red River this year, 2-1 against North, 3-0 vs Shanley and 1-1 against Century, all equal talent as South. The EDC teams finished 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th at the State this year. Your arguments holds no water and you know nothing about their program.
Completely agree! South has always had a strong program, and anyone who follows Class A ball should know that the competition is expanding and it is very tough get to the Championship game. They did it 2 years in a row. There were top ranked teams who didn't even get to the tournament, and the #1 ranked team entered the State tourney as a 3rd seed out of their region. High school coaches are coaching 14-18 year old kids. There are a lot of factors that can make coaching challenging, and if anyone can continue to have a succesful program year after year, they should be respected.

Bismarck last year beat South, but had to have Feeney who is now playing D1 ball to put up an MVP night, and Sigl who is an All-American juco player was right there with her. South did not choke, Bismarck was tough, and so was the WDA. Fans from the EDC just didn't get a chance to see that until state. This year there were 4 D1 athletes on the court, and it took a starting sophomore and a player off the bench to step up to make the big difference for Century. There was good coaching on both sides, the 2 best teams in the state who won their region earned the right to be there, and it really came down to the players who could really pull it together in the end. There are professional athletes who get paid 12 million a year who can't pull off the win when needed.
