Algoma has won two state titles (1981, 1986) and they have finished second twice, most recently in 2011.

Colfax (25-1) is making their third appearance at state and unlike the other three Division 4 semifinalists, they have yet to win a state championship.  In fact, the Vikings have lost in the semifinals in their two previous trips to the state tournament.  Colfax won the Dunn-Saint Croix Conference championship this season and advanced to the Resch Center by winning the Chippewa Falls sectional. Head coach Joe Doucette (504-101, 26th season) brings a balanced team to state…
