The Sartell Sabres’ girls’ basketball team whopped Willmar last week to win the Central Lakes Conference championship, beating Willmar 60-47.
That same night, St. Cloud Tech whipped the Alexandria girls’ basketball team, which, along with their win against Willmar, put the Sabres in the top spot.
It is the first time the Sabres won a CLC championship.
Their record is 14-2 in the CLC.
The Sabres next game was slated to be a home game with Albany at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 26, the day after this paper went to press.
The Sabres have made it to state competition twice – in 2005 and in 2010.
